About KeithRN

KeithRN has grown into a trusted company by putting the needs of faculty first! While other nursing education companies emphasize products for students, primarily centered on passing the NCLEX, KeithRN products support faculty as they transform the way they teach.

Realizing that the foundation of nursing practice is built on mastering critical thinking and clinical reasoning to determine the correct clinical judgment, Keith integrates this concept called Think Like a Nurse in all KeithRN products.

*Note: Chris Tanner is the educator who developed the term “think like a nurse” when she published her seminal article on clinical judgment in 2006 and titled it, “Thinking Like a Nurse: A Research-Based Model of Clinical Judgment in Nursing.”

KeithRN provides faculty with easy-to-use tools and resources to help programs engage students to not only be successful on NCLEX, but graduate practice ready.

KeithRN now has over 100 clinical reasoning case study topics, active learning tools, and faculty development webinars with CEs on the membership platform, Think Like a Nurse with almost 2,000 members

In 2022, he published Think Like a Nurse. This three-volume student textbook set provides a practice-based perspective on essential content, including professional identity formation, holistic care, civility in nursing, pathophysiology, and the development of clinical judgment.
