Yes! Maybe it won't be so bad.. - page 2

    Don't worry guys and gals! Critical thinking is nothing more than just reasoning (and common sense like the poster above stated). If you can look at answer choices and reason them out --as in, go through each one and determine why it might be right or wrong--you will do fine in a nursing program. It also involves applying knowledge you have learned, which is nothing more than just using that knowledge to reason out answers.

    For me (& some classmates) the "critical thinking" is the easiest part. If you normally do well at reasoning and standardized tests you'll do fine. This was the thing that most students had the most trouble with though. (all of us answer "reasoners" aren't as good at memorization and found Pharmocology with it's many drugs to memorize more difficult).Those that struggle a bit more with critical thinking tend to be people who are use to acing tests by memorizing and then answering direct questions. It took them a little longer to learn how to study for nursing school tests but a little practice and most can do fine. Get a good NCLEX prep book like Saunders if you're worried about it and practice doing questions that correlate to whatever you're studying.
