Critical thinking is an important topic in nursing education today. The authors describe an assignment, based on the steps of the nursing process, in which students use critical-thinking skills to develop, implement, and evaluate a personal health-promotion contract. The assignment allows students to integrate health promotion, behavioral contracting, and critical-thinking concepts from the dual perspective of the nurse and the patient.
