    Books that I know of are:

    Critical Thinking in Nursing: A Cognitive Skills Workbook by Saundra K. Lipe and Sharon Beasley. Runs about $36.

    Strategies, Techniques, and Approaches to Thinking: Critical Thinking Cases in Nursing by Sandra Luz Martine de Castillo. Runs About $35.

    Winningham and Preusser's Critical Thinking in Medical-Surgical Settings: A Case Study Approach by Barbara A. Preusser. Runs about #34.

    I would strongly recommend that you check them out on a website like Barnes and Nobel or Amazon before buying first.

    Don't know any....but others' suggestions are great ! I had a nursing instructor previously who told the students to critically think by keep asking why..........the patient has pain.....why? pain is from xx ......why? xx is xx.....why? etc really helped with my critical thinking....just an idea........but whatever works best for you is what you should do....good luck!

    :yeahthat: I love, love, love my Saunder's NCLEX Review. It's better than my text book at reviewing stuff and it has application questions at the end of each chapter as well as a cd full of questions. LOVE IT!!
