About Karen A Shindhelm, RN, MSN, CNE

Hello! My focus of research and study is critical thinking for nurses. I have created a web site on this topic which is available to any user. It is geared toward a small, one hour credit course for instilling critical thinking for nursing students. Knowing that critical thinking cannot be 'thought' alone, I am now seeking other nursing eductors who are interested in this area. I also have created another site for nursing educators to input their critical thinking implementation that they use for their students, whether it is a question, case study, scenario, role play, or pause-think session. In this way, we as educators can combine our experiences with the intent to further increase our nursing students' critical thinking. Please contact me with any ideas or questions you may have!
