Abstract
Research on critical thinking related to instructing specific techniques to nursing students will be conducted into the critical thinking disposition of students enrolled in a baccalaureate nursing program at a college in Illinois.  Does the implementation of case studies and story in the clinical setting improve critical thinking in nursing students and improve test scores?  A research study to evaluate the benefits, relationships and outcomes on critical thinking in nursing academia and nursing practice will be studied.  Critical thinking may be summarized as a skilled process that applies and conceptualizes information form reflection, observation, experience, and communication in a technical manner.  Critical thinking is more than a rational act used as an instrument rather than as a result.  Over the past years, critical thinking has been a core competency in nursing and has been widely discussed in nursing education; however some of the research has been inconsistent on the effectiveness of nursing education in improving students? critical skills and critical reasoning skills in nursing school.  The need to integrate strategies to educate the nursing student can provide creative ways to meet the learner?s needs.  It is vital that all nursing faculty realize the commitment and dedication it takes to provide students quality learning experiences in the clinical setting.   Further research to effectively understand students and obtain significant outcomes of a practice driven approach with a mixed-method will be beneficial to students and nurse faculty.  The goal of the research is to provide techniques, skills, and methods on how to improve critical thinking and critical reasoning in nursing students.  By employing a strategy this would in turn help the student and also provide a method for faculty to teach students.
