simulation and critical thinking

I am doing my research study on the lack of critical thinking. My proposal is to incorporate more simulation into the curriculum to foster critical thinking. Anyone have any comments or suggestions?

Hi Dawn,

You may want to look at the more updated term "clinical reasoning" instead. There are some tools out there which are beginning to look at "clinical reasoning". You may also want to look at the Dr. Chris Tanner's "Thinking Like a Nurse" model. There is a consortium in Oregon where communicy colleges and universities are all using this same model and they have successfully integrated simulation into this shared curriculum.
