Clinical Reasoning Project

Examining the Impact of Simulated Patients and Information and Communication Technology on Nursing Students' Clinical Reasoning

Clinical reasoning involves cognitive processing skills such as critical thinking, decision making and problem solving. This project examines how nursing students' clinical reasoning skills and knowledge application can be enhanced by the effective use of human patient simulation (HPS) manikins and information and communication technologies (ICT) such as personal digital assistants (PDAs).
