This presentation will explore the foundations of clinical reasoning in nursing education to support current best practices. The strategies for content, structure and process of clinical reasoning will be discussed to show their relationships to help the learner formulate a model for achieving clinical reasoning outcomes. Support for this clinical reasoning model will be supported by research findings and experience implementing the model concepts.
