Most jobs at one time or another require the worker to think critically in order to figure out or resolve a problem. The same can be said for a CNL or the clinical nurse leader. She or he must make decisions for their patients.

Sometimes, the answers are not easy, but they must be figured out. If you were a clinical nurse leader on the telemetry unit, you would be monitoring patients who need the utmost care because their condition is critical. At this time, you are also training a newly graduated nurse.

This nurse is just beginning and doesn’t get everything right. At the same time, it is important for both nurses to think critically especially when the CNL has to discuss with the physician the rationale for discontinuing cardiac monitoring in the hospice.

Critical thinking underlies independent and interdependent decision making. Critical thinking includes questioning, analysis, synthesis, interpretation, inference, inductive and deductive reasoning, intuition, application, and creativity.
