Abstract

This book is part of the Transforming Nursing Practice series, written specifically to support students on pre registration nursing programmes. The ability to think critically is a core skill that modern nurses need to develop in order to improve quality of care in practice.However, many nursing students find learning to think critically daunting. This book is a clear and practical guide to developing critical thinking skills. The first part of the book helps the reader to understand what critical thinking is and why it is important, while the second part shows how to use critical thinking in practical contexts throughout nursing programmes. The final part shows how to demonstrate your abilities in written form. Throughout, the book spells out the transferable nature of critical thinking skills from academic contexts to the practice of nursing.
