Module 01 Discussion – Clinical Judgment

Clinical Judgment is the process of integrating evidence-based  practice, critical-thought, the Nursing Process, knowledge, skills, and  attitudes, as well as application of theory to practice in order to  promote safe, quality care to clients in all settings.
