The symposium provides an overview of the Perceptive/Affective and Cognitive Critical Thinking Process (PAC) model testing undertaken in a long term study of nursing students and expert nurses. Before critical thinking can be useful to the nursing profession, the concept must be defined and differentiated from clinical reasoning. Furthermore, the concepts must be done allowing for remediation and uniform understanding of the concept. The Perceptive, Affective, and Cognitive Critical Thinking Model provides a definition, teaching strategies, and evaluation methods. The model was developed in 1998 by Deana Molinari, Joanne Abbeglan, and Debora Mills at Brigham Young University. The definition, framework, and measurement methods have been used in classrooms for 10 years. A 4 year research study addresses the model?s ability to measure thinking acts, the feasibility of teaching thinking, and the ability of teaching the model to increasing the number of thinking acts used in clinical decision making. The symposium will discuss the baseline results of a four year model testing study begun in 2007. The overview will provide the model?s history, philosophy, components, and purpose. Comparison of concepts with other critical thinking theories demonstrates the need for a process theory. Mention of past research studies will demonstrate the model?s capabilities. Software capable of measuring student thinking will also be introduced. An overview of the present long term research study will be provided along with an introduction of the studies to be presented. Research studies using the same methodologies on different samples include: A pre/post educational intervention of pre-nurse students, a baseline study of senior students without an intervention, a medical/surgical study without an intervention, and a one-time measurement of expert nurses.
