Transform the way you teach

Despite passing the NCLEX®, most graduate nurses do not currently possess the clinical judgment required for safe practice.

To better prepare students for practice (and licensure), educators must transform the way nursing is taught.

Nurse Educators Who Got RESULTS

My students and I love your tools!

“I used Keith’s framework of teaching clinical reasoning instead of our traditional care plan. Great success! The students loved it, I loved it, and they report feeling much better prepared for patient care.”

–Rob Morris, RN, MSN

Strategies work!

“I can say that the case studies that Keith designed work. The students are engaged in class, and the second-year students who had Keith last year continue to talk about them.”

–Michelle Natrop, RN, MSN

Made Me Think Like a Nurse

“KeithRN case studies were EXTREMELY helpful to prepare me on my exam because I had to analyze and apply textbook readings. The case study helped me realize I had to monitor trends to provide safe patient care.”

–Amy, nursing student

Helped my students think like a nurse!

“I use your framework of clinical reasoning questions in clinical each week because it helps my students get a clearer picture of the patient and helps them make connections and put all of the pieces together.”

–Amber Gentry, MSN, RN

Meet Keith

Keith Rischer, Ph.D., RN, CCRN, CEN is a nursing education innovator who merged his clinical and educational expertise to create clinical judgment resources that enable students to become active participants in the learning process.

As an author, nurse educator, and expert clinician with more than 35 years of experience, he is recognized as a thought leader on clinical judgment and its importance to modern nursing practice and patient outcomes.

He speaks widely at conferences and workshops across the United States and Canada on critical thinking, clinical reasoning, and strategies to close the theory-to-practice educational gap so graduates possess clinical judgment and are better prepared for both practice and Next Generation NCLEX.


Driven by a passion for empowering, inspiring, and educating the next generation of nurses, in 2012 Keith launched KeithRN to achieve his vision of transforming nursing education by reimagining how nursing is taught using educational best-practices.

KeithRN is now a leading resource of strategies and tools to support faculty teaching and strengthen student learning by bringing clinical realities to class through an emphasis on clinical reasoning using salient case-based scenarios.

Thousands of nurse educators have successfully used KeithRN’s innovative tools that emphasize clinical reasoning using real-world patient-focused scenarios. The outcome is graduates who are practice-ready and Next Generation NCLEX prepared.

KeithRN Prepare Students For Practice

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How is this membership different than Keith’s all-inclusive membership “Think Like a Nurse”?

A: Most new educators do not receive adequate training to be successful in this new and challenging role. This membership focuses on the TEACHING that any nurse educator needs to better prepare students for clinical practice and licensure by implementing educational best practices that include implementing active learning to contextualize content to practice.

Keith’s other membership, Think Like a Nurse, emphasizes the TOOLS to quickly implement active learning and develop clinical judgment in the clinical setting. The educator must first be empowered by teaching to use the tools successfully. These memberships though separate, complement each other and can be bundled together for a significant discount for both individual and departmental access.

Q: Who will benefit from this membership?

A: If you are a new full-time educator or part-time clinical adjunct, this membership site is perfect for you. It will provide essential teaching that will lay a solid foundation to help you successfully transition to your new role. Experienced educators who recognize the need to do things differently have also found this content helpful and appreciate the time-saving tools that can be easily accessed at the click of a button!

Q: How often will you be adding additional webinars?

A: Two new webinars will be added each month on relevant topics that focus on faculty development, teaching clinical judgment in the class and clinical settings, and “hot topics” such as student incivility and addressing infobesity in the content/curriculum. This means that the membership grows in value the longer you subscribe!

Q: How is this membership different than NurseTim’s webinar subscription for nurse educators?

A: The webinars are shorter averaging 20-30 minutes so they can be easily viewed in one sitting and/or presented in a staff meeting to encourage departmental dialogue. The webinar presentations include video of the presenter and are not a voiceover PowerPoint. Most webinars include bonus time-saving tools and supplemental resources so that educational best-practices presented can easily be made actionable.
