Scheffer (along with M. Gaie Rubenfeld) have drawn on their research and expertise in teaching and practice to synthesize the components of critical thinking in nursing with the Institute of Medicine's five competencies (patient-centered care, interdisciplinary teamwork, evidence-based practice, informatics, and quality improvement) to provide this cutting edge text for nurse clinicians and educators. Their skill in writing common-sense information in a humorous style make this text both enjoyable to read and invaluable in promoting critical thinking in nursing practice and education.
