Back to Video Library

The National Council on State Boards of Nursing (NCBSN) defines clinical judgement as the observed outcome of critical thinking and decision making. It is an iterative process where clinical judgement uses nursing knowledge to observe and access presenting situations, identify a prioritized client concern, and generate the best possible evidence-based solution in order to deliver safe client care.
