Next Generation Learning - Clinical Reasoning for Undergraduate and Graduate Programs

Speaker - Tim Bristol, PhD, RN, CNE, ANEF, FAADN - Lead Faculty Consultant, Owner, NurseTim Inc.

Given the complexity of healthcare, it is no wonder faculty struggle with helping students dig deep and make critical connections. In the fundamentals of nursing, students will discover for the first time some of the  most important concepts on NCLEX and at the bedside. When students have little background, how do we help them quickly experience high level clinical reasoning?

 In graduate programs, how do we get the learners to apply expansive concepts in a way that makes the evidence base come alive for students? According to the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, clinical reasoning is the DOING part of critical thinking. Through studies over a 10 year period, NCLEX has developed a useful model for clinical reasoning that includes cue recognition, hypotheses generation, hypotheses evaluation, taking actions, and evaluating outcomes. This conference will explore each of these five areas for both undergraduate and graduate education.

Learning Outcomes Include:

  1. Discuss the use of clinical reasoning in undergraduate and graduate nursing programs
  2. Develop learning activities that promote clinical reasoning
  3. Assess curricular structure and policy for emphasis in clinical reasoning
