Abstract

This paper reports our implementation of a web-based learning support system to foster nursing students' clinical reasoning skills. Computer-based mindtools were implemented in the system to help students engage in critical thinking within a nursing process framework. The findings showed that the majority of students considered the application tools helpful to them in doing clinical reasoning. However, a few students experienced difficulties in using the tools and suggested ways to simplify and unify the application tools.
