CRITICAL THINKING AND PROFESSIONAL NURSING CARE OVERVIEW Part of the assigned readings in your textbook this week includes critical thinking. According to Finkelman (as cited in Finkelman & Kenner, 2016), “critical thinking requires nurses to generate and examine questions and problems, use intuition, examine feelings, and clarify and evaluate evidence. It means being aware of change and willing to take some risks. Critical thinking allows the nurse to avoid using dichotomous thinking—seeing things either as good or bad, or black or white. This limits possibilities and clinical choices for patients” (p. 287). Essential IX of the BSN Essentials (American Association of Colleges of Nursing, 2008), Baccalaureate General Nursing Practice, stresses that professional nursing care is developed and refined by opportunities that build on one’s critical thinking abilities. On page 222 of your textbook, the authors discuss the emergence of the science of genetics and the Human Genome Project (HGP).
