Build confidence and competence through critical thinking
A rapidly-growing number of nurse leaders are concerned that the new graduates who flock to medical-surgical units to gain experience lack the critical thinking skills necessary to practice in a complex medical-surgical environment.
Raise the standard of professional nursing practice and teach clinical care providers how to function at a higher level with the HCPro book, Critical Thinking in the Medical-Surgical Unit: Skills to Assess, Analyze, and Act. This easy-to-read resource explains the principles of critical thinking and how to encourage nurses to use critical thinking methods. It covers how to lead classroom sessions for new graduate nurses and experienced nurses to develop critical thinking skills, including successful classroom processes and learning strategies. It includes teaching tips, workbooks, and handouts to supplement the classroom learning.
Critical Thinking in the Medical-Surgical Unit provides strategies for managers and nurse educators to develop critical thinking skills during orientation and beyond, and includes tools and resources for ongoing development.
