WORKSHEET Clinical Reasoning Questions – DEMO

Clinical reasoning is the “thinking in action” skill that leads to a correct clinical judgment. Use this worksheet that identifies several clinical reasoning questions that align with each process of Tanner’s CJM to unpackage how a nurse reasons in practice.

By asking the right questions in class, clinical, and in your test questions, clinical reasoning can be developed and strengthened.

Because Tanner’s CJM aligns with the six steps of the NGN model, use this worksheet to write test questions to evaluate clinical judgment.
