Abestract BACKGROUND: Because of changes in the medical environment, nurses must maintain the ability of divergent thinking to solve the health problems of patients. However, many nurses whose work in clinical practice has become routine have lost the ability of creativity. To cultivate nurses creativity should be a goal of nursing education. AIM: The study aim was to compare between the traditional method of teaching and teaching method adopting critical thinking by both students and faculty members. METHODS: Five tools were designed and used for data collection for this study. The five tools were Teacher Assessment Tool By Student, Course Assessment Tool By Student, Critical Thinking Questionnaires, The Student Satisfaction Tool, and The Teacher Self-Assessment Tool. The students carried the first three tools Twice, once before the implementation of the nursing curricula adopting critical thinking skills to assess the effectiveness of the traditional method of teaching and once after the implementation of the critical thinking skills in nursing curricula. The Student Satisfaction Tool was designed to assess the student satisfaction with teaching and learning experiences of courses adopting critical thinking strategies. The Teacher Self-Assessment Tool was used once after the implementation of the nursing curricula adopting critical thinking skills. RESULTS: There was a statistical significant improvement of the total mean score of the teacher evaluation and course evaluation by students after teaching adopting critical thinking strategies than their mean score Adopting traditional method of teaching (p = 0.00, p = 0.00 respectively). There was a statistical significant improvement in the student's critical thinking skills score after teaching adopting critical thinking strategies. The majority of students were satisfied with the teaching adopting critical thinking. Regarding teacher self-evaluation, teachers rated themselves high in all 10 major characteristics of a teacher in the classroom. CONCLUSION: Teaching method adopting critical thinking in nursing curricula significantly improved the teacher and course assessment mean scores as will as the students critical thinking ability.
