From the Paper:

"It is critically important that today's professional nursing staff are taught critical thinking skills and there is no better way to do just this than through the use of critical care workbooks on critical thinking in handling critical care patients properly and successfully. Critical care workbooks enhance the learning of the nursing science students in that common situations are addressed in the workbooks as well as uncommon and rare situations that the nursing professional is likely to be faced with sometime during the course of their professional career."
