Critical Thinking???

  1. I have to find an article about critical thinking in nursing. It must contain the key words "critical thinking" and "nursing". I have looked EVERYWHERE I can, and can't find anything that's free or that has the entire article.

    Does anyone know of an article that fits the bill? I'm developing carpal tunnel from all this searching....

    I found this one http://www.nursingnetwork.com/critthink1.htm it is an online article. You didn't mention if it could be online or if it has to be out of a journal.

    I found that first one and didn't think it would work b/c of the length. But, that second one rocks!!!!

    This is what I have to do with it:

    Purpose/goal of article
    Main points
    How this article would apply to nursing practice
    Strengths and weaknesses of the study as ID'd by the author
    How did this article improve your understanding of critical thinking

    I will print it out and show her....I HOPE IT'S OK!!!

    P.S. Thank you SO much!!!!!!!!

    Ack!! Does anyone out there go to a school with a library?
    Have any idea why they pay the librarians? Why they spend lots and lots of money on nursing journals?

    Sorry to be cranky but librarians can save you more time than you can even imagine. I wish I had known that before I became a librarian. Would have saved myself more grief and effort than words can say.

    We're a friendly, helpful people, a lot like nurses.

    My school library sucks!!! There are only 2 nursing journals avaliable. The last book I went to was from 1972. Needless to say it is very out of date. They expect all students to use the interlibrary loan system to get anything. Nothing is every found on campus. Last semester the nursing class carpooled to another University to use their library. Thank goodness they didn't ask us any questions.
