Four modules/9 session course that includes numerous KeithRN time-saving tools to easily develop clinical judgment skills PLUS 4 contact hours!

This new course was designed to empower nurse educators to confidently teach clinical judgment skills using educational best practices across the curriculum so students can repeatedly practice nurse thinking to graduate well prepared for clinical practice and the upcoming NextGen NCLEX.

How to Teach Clinical Judgment

To effectively teach clinical judgment, it must be correctly defined. This module will lay the foundation for nurse educators so clinical judgment is understood and identify what educational best practices are most effective to develop clinical judgment.

Classroom Strategies to Develop Clinical Judgment

To practice and develop clinical judgment, the classroom needs to be transformed from a passive learning environment where textbook content is regurgitated to an active learning setting where students come to class prepared ready to practice clinical judgment skills in the safety of the classroom.

Clinical and Simulation Strategies to Develop Clinical Judgment

To develop clinical judgment in the clinical, faculty need to control the learning environment by providing supplemental activities and developing clinical paperwork that reinforces clinical judgment skills. This module will highlight essential strategies to develop clinical judgment and problem recognition skills.

Writing Test Questions to Evaluate Clinical Judgment

Now is the time to start writing test questions that will capture the essence of the clinical judgment skills students require for both practice and NextGen NCLEX. This module will highlight practical strategies to write concise case-based scenarios with a series of questions that capture the essence of what will be expected to be successful on the upcoming NextGen NCLEX.
