However, relatively little is known about the effectiveness of teaching strategies in promoting CT. Evaluating effectiveness is important to promote 'best practise' in teaching.

Review methods: After screening for inclusion, each paper was evaluated using the Critical Appraisal Skills Programme tool.
Objectives: This review aimed to explore how critical thinking is perceived in previous studies of nursing education, and analyse the obstacles and strategies in teaching and learning critical thinking mentioned in these studies.

In an increasingly complex and tech-centric healthcare system, registered nurses RNs have to be able to make quick, effective decisions. That skill relies on critical thinking, a purposeful and logical thought process that leads to positive patient outcomes. Earning an advanced degree in an online Master of Science in Nursing MSN program can empower nurse educators to help the next generation of RNs develop the critical-thinking skills that are fundamental to effective patient care.
