Clinical Decision Making

 Interview a nurse, or another health care provider. Ask the nurse to describe a situation they have experienced that required them to make a clinical decision. Ask them if they have ever made a decision they wish they could change. One example of this might be that they decided to call 911 when a patient experienced a change in level of consciousness, but they now wish they had checked the blood sugar level before calling. Write a synopsis of the interview and share with the clinical group. Find a nursing article discussing critical thinking, and write a summary of the article. In your own words, develop a definition of critical thinking (15 words or less), and share with the clinical group.
