Abstract

We developed a critical-thinking program that uses the skills of the expert, one-on-one conversations, and open-ended questions in a 5-minute session to increase the training of newly hired staff. This article describes how we took a concept that is found at all levels of nursing and intertwined it to become an important aspect of training for the novice nurse. These concepts can be easily introduced in any healthcare setting.
