21st INRC [Evidence-Based Practice Presentation] Objectives: This descriptive comparative study was conducted to determine and compare critical thinking skills of first- and last-term baccalaureate students of nursing, midwifery and occupational therapy in medical universities of Tehran in 2006. Methods: All 426 freshman and senior students in three medical universities in Tehran city including Shaheed Beheshti, Tehran, and Iran were selected. They completedÿa demographic form and California Critical Thinking Skills Test (Form B). Results: Findings showed a significant difference between total critical thinking scores of the first- and last-term students of nursing and midwifery in Shaheed Beheshti and Iran University respectively (P<0.04 ) and (p<0.03). However, there was no significant difference in other groups. In addition, no significant difference was found in total critical thinking scores of students at different disciplines and universities. There was no significant relationship between the total critical thinking scores of the subjects and their age, sex, marital status, work experience, computer knowledge as well as participation in extra classes although having high school diploma in mathematics and physics or higher average scores of senior students at previous terms and reading books in various topics showed a significant relationship. Discussion: In general, findings of this study showed no significant increase in critical thinking skills of senior students. This may be resulted from inadequate attention to instructing these skills during their education.
