Reviews from Nurse Educators

Keith is a gift to nursing, and his Think Like a Nurse membership is desperately needed at this time. He has developed tools for educators to bring real-life into our classrooms. This will prepare our students for real-world practice. I truly believe this down-to-earth, concise, and organized forum will lay the foundation for the development of the Registered Nurse. KeithRN is the real deal and different than any other platform to empower educators to implement needed change.

Using decades of clinical experience and education, Keith provides foundational knowledge and reasoning that guides any nurse towards effective clinical judgment. As a student nurse, I’ve benefited from this book to build and establish critical thinking as it applies to the nursing process.

Thanks to the KeithRN curriculum, we have truly transformed our classroom, lab, and clinicals. My program has shown a complete turnaround as a direct result of your membership (particularly the case studies). By the way, we have had a 100% pass rate this year for the third year in a row, even in the midst and challenges of COVID-19.

— Hutch Hutchinson, RN, BSN, DirectorBedford School of Practical Nursing

I've been teaching a four-day NCLEX review for our seniors and have used several of your case studies. It made our class so much more fun than the traditional 'death by PowerPoint.' I am excited to help them learn to 'think like a nurse' using your method. Thank you!

— Joy Kimbrell, RN, MSN, Assistant Professor of Nursing and DirectorCenter for Nursing Success, Cumberland University

Your case studies have our nursing students connecting the dots and asking ‘does this make sense?’ in alignment with the patient’s story. You can almost see the lightbulbs’ brightening the room as they begin to think like a nurse. Thank you for your work inspiring the strength of our next generation of nurses.
