Overview

Thinking as a Nurse is a point-of-view work gleaned from 37 years of direct patient care and 25 years of teaching nursing. The book emphasizes the non-technical components of nursing practice--the cognitive and cerebral aspects. The primary role of nurses is to identify and solve patient problems and Thinking as a Nurse looks at influences of clinical problem solving such as empathy, what the patient says to the nurse, pathophysiology, nurse-physician relationships, teamwork, and setting priorities. Memorization and an overemphasis on technical skills are discussed as possible pitfalls in the education of nurses. The book helps students study for nursing examinations and be more adroit in their clinical practices. There are chapters addressing studying techniques and how to deal with NCLEX-type questions.

I'm thankful to have discovered this book! No one really emphasizes on how to do just that "think as a nurse". But instead I often heard and saw (from others going through their programs) the importance of technical skills and whether or not they can memorize successful large amounts of information; thus, no clarity on correctly applying it in classroom and clinical situations which causes the student frustrations. Therefore, while I'm both mentally & physically preparing for my new journey and major career change I'm keeping this book close on hand. What others couldn't explain to me this book did in plain detail! I now know that much more about what it means to be a nursing student and some methods on how to be successful in any BSN program.
