Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This is an accessible, compact and very helpful text which breaks down key concepts associated with critical thinking, what it means and how students might go about it. Very practically focused and I particularly liked the application to both theory and practice learning experiences' -
Dr Norrie Brown, Edinburgh Napier University

'I think it is an extremely useful book for student nurses attempting to understand what critical thinking is and how to use and demonstrate critical thinking in both theoretical and practical work. It contains a wide breadth of useful information which is current and relevant to student nurses today' -
Lucie Moore, University of Manchester 

'We have now included this text on the reading list for all pre-registration programmes across the modules. We found the book to provide a clear explanation for concepts and skills which students continually struggle with' -
Gemma Stacey, University of Nottingham

'This is an area students struggle with especially as they move from year 1 to year 2. This excellent text has been recommended for library purchase and is on the reading list for every unit. It explores the issue in depth but in a simple way that can engage the reader easily' -
Caroline Ridley, Manchester Metropolitan University 

'Finally, a text which explores the step-by-step journey of critical thinking and reflection but takes the added step of informing the reader as to how such reflection should be documented. I will be using this book as a key text from September 2010 with my students for the practice element of their programme, since critical reflection and thinking will prove extremely valuable to the student's future nursing careers' -
Thomas Beary, University of Hertfordshire

Caroline E Gibson
This book helps students to navigate the jump from year 2 to degree level writing. I particularly appreciate the chapter on making sense of clinical placements as it helps the students tie together their theory and practice experiences. The chapter on making sense of lectures is excellent and can be used by student’s right from entry to university. The chapter outlines the importance of preparing for lectures and the use of ‘different hats’ to consider different elements of the lecture is very engaging.
