Nurses use a variety of skills to care for patients. Nursing faculty are well versed in clinical judgment in their everyday practice in teaching nursing students to make those pertinent nursing care decisions. The goal of this webinar is to provide a theoretical basis for clinical judgment and to apply its use in item writing NCLEX-style questions for nursing exams.

At the end of this seminar, you will be able to:

  • Review current evidence of clinical judgement in nursing decision making.
  • Use the principles of clinical judgement to item writing principles.
  • Demonstrate the ability to write questions at the various cognitive levels of Bloom’s revised taxonomy
