hi. critical thinking skills can't be learned in a nursing curriculum. forget it. if you want to hone your critical thinking, embark upon a classical education: history, language, literature, anthropology, mathematics, psychology (non-nursing), political science, arts, economics, science, et al.. how about a ba in english literature? listen, nursing is antithetical to critical thinking. think about what i say before responding. and once you attain a level of critical thought, do you really think you'll be honored within the profession? you'll be chastised if not eradicated.
