Nursing Education for Critical Thinking: An Integrative Review.
Adams, Barbara L.
Journal of Nursing Education, v38 n3 p111-19 Mar 1999
Analysis of 20 research studies of critical thinking in nursing, 1977-1995, found that the Watson Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal was used in 18. There was no consistent evidence that nursing education increases critical thinking. Research design flaws, inconsistent definition of critical thinking, and lack of an appropriate measurement tool are possible causes. (SK)
