Kati Kleber, MSN RN– Nurse educator, former cardiac med-surg/stepdown and neurocritical care nurse, author, and speaker.

What You’ll Learn

When a patient gets admitted to the hospital, we ask routine questions to assess risk for self-harm. But… what should you say when they say yes? I asked my husband (professional counselor, worked in mental health for 10+ years) for some talking points!

Are you looking to sharpen your critical thinking skills as a nurse?

Critical Thinking Course Frame

Critical Thinking For Nurses from FreshRN is a self-paced, online course that will help you fine-tune this often overlooked, but crucial skill. Critical thinking is a specific way of coming to a decision from an objective and balanced place, rather than taking everything you are told at face value and making a quick decision. Being able to think on this level is imperative for patient safety, and will take you from being a good nurse to an exceptional nurse your colleagues respect and look up to. Join Kati as she shares her practical approach to demystifying this ‘critical’ nursing skill.
