When we were teaching critical care nursing students at the University of Virginia, we found that teaching diagnostic reasoning was best accomplished by using a case-based approach that guided students to think systematically to rule out specific diagnoses in their differential diagnosis. . The approach is reminiscent of Eliza Doolittle’s request to Henry Higgins when describing how to be a lady. She sang to him: “Don’t tell me, show me!” We developed a teaching method using a case format to do just that, to “show” students how to evaluate data to support or refute a diagnosis.
71 cases based on real-life clinical scenarios.
Analysis questions and case discussions to enable students to actively engage in inductive and deductive reasoning.
Cases that can be used to support coursework, certification review, and job training.
The first of its kind, Acute, and Critical Care Nurse Practitioner: Diagnostic Reasoning Cases is an essential learning and teaching resource for students, clinicians, and clinical faculty to master the art of diagnostic reasoning.
