Today descion-making part of problem solving has become increasingly complex and requires critical thinking.
New approach in Nursing Education: Critical thinking is a multidimential skill, a cognitive or mental process or set of procedures. It evolves reasoning and purposeful, systematic, reflective, rational, outcome-directed thinking based on body of knowledge, as well as examination and analysis of all available information and ideas.

Critical thinking includes metacognition, the examination of one's own reasoning or thought process while thinking, to help strengthen and refine thinking skills.
Nursing practice today's society mandates the use of high level critical thinking skills within the nursing process and ensuring the successful use of clinical pathways.
