dc.description.abstract Critical Care Nursing is included in the curriculum for all nursing students. It is a key factor in determining whether or not a nursing student is able to use all of the previous knowledge they have learned and apply it to the care of a multifaceted patient. Critical care patients are unique and complex, and their conditions often impact multiple body systems. Being able to think critically, connect past knowledge, and create a plan of care is vital in an aspiring nurse. All student nurses should be able to show an advanced critical thinking, clinical judgement, and clinical decision-making skills. This course puts the student nurse to the test and determines if they have the critical thinking skills needed to become a nurse. This thesis is centered on the analysis of five reflective case studies and the learning process and growth that is encompassed within them. It also draws attention to the importance of critical thinking in the education of student nurses and how it is important in the transition from nursing student to BSN RN. en_US
