View of Critical Thinking, Clinical Reasoning, and Clinical Judgment: A Practical ApproachClinical reasoning and critical thinking. Corresponding Author. This study identifies and analyzes nursing literature on clinical reasoning and critical thinking. Further research and evaluation of educational programs on clinical reasoning that integrate psychosocial responses to physiological responses of people cared by nurses is needed. The term clinical reasoning is used in scientific literature to describe the mental processes involved in the care delivered to users of healthcare systems. The word reasoning comes from the Latin word raciocinium - calculation, evaluation, use of reason, whereas clinical derives from the Greek word klinikos - bed, clinic, place where preventive, curative and palliative procedures are carried out or analysis of the signs and symptoms manifested by patients 1.

Scientific Research An Academic Publisher. Affiliation s. Many of our nurses are confused on the differences between critical thinking, clinical reasoning and clinical judgment, and how it affects clinical decision making; they are related to each other but not comparable. The ultimate goal of this initiative is to help and guide the nurses to understand dissimilarity of these important components in the process of nursing care and use it an appropriate manner based on different situations they encounter in every day routine at their workplace in different clinical areas and capacities. Based on the study conducted, most of the nurses responded that clinical reasoning is only incorporated during assessment . The findings of the research study were used to develop a model to guide every nurse that in every action taken in the process of nursing care, it has a valid rationalization, importance and benefits to the recipient of care.
