Clinical practice skills in nursing are obviously important.

But without some critical thinking behind those skills, the outcomes can result in significant critical incidents and even death.

In fact, thinking and especially critical thinking must precede all that nurses “DO” to provide quality nursing care. Some of that thinking occurs in micro-seconds, some takes more time, but thinking before doing is paramount to safe patient care.
