Critical thinking skills are the heart and soul of nursing in all settings. Critical thinking skills allow us to use the nursing process effectively to provide patient care. How can we enhance our use of critical thinking in the GI Lab? What does it mean to be a critical thinker in the GI Lab? Do we use a different critical thinking skill set in the GI Lab?
