I need support with this Nursing question so I can learn better.
Define critical thinking and evidence-based practice. Discuss what critical thinking in nursing practice entails and explain why it is important. Discuss the role of critical thinking and evidence-based practice as they relate to patient outcomes.
PS: Just a quick note about references, most of the time you are not looking up articles, but information on the Internet. There is scholarly information on the Internet but a couple rules are followed for college level papers:
Do not use: .com, .net, sites for school posts/papers.
OK to use: .mil, .edu, .gov for posts/papers.
Sometimes .org are ok, these need to be evaluated for who the author is. You will also find that an occasional .com site will be ok, but you HAVE to know that the author is scholarly. By scholarly I mean you know that the person that wrote the article has experience in that field.
