Integrating Clinical Judgment Across Your Pre-Licensure Nursing Curriculum

A webinar featuring three professors from the University of Kansas School of Nursing

Clinical judgment is used for more than 46% of tasks routinely performed by RNs in their first year of practice.

With so much riding on clinical judgment, Jessica Gay, Dr. Laura Klenke-Borgmann, and Christina Phillips developed a method to integrate clinical judgment across the curriculum at the University Kansas School of Nursing. After experiencing success, they shared their findings at a recent NLN conference.

In this free recorded webinar, you’ll learn:

  • The importance of clinical judgment development for nursing students
  • A method for integrating clinical judgment early in pre-service curricula
  • Examples of how this method works in nursing courses and programs
