KeithRN’s Clinical Reasoning Case Studies
All KeithRN Clinical Reasoning Case Studies (CRCS) have now been completely revised with new scenarios, clinical data, and an interactive format and are unlike any case study in the marketplace. They provide a written narrative of an authentic patient scenario and simulate clinical realities with data that unfolds in multiple stages – just like a nurse encounters in practice.
The case studies deliver a consistent framework of open-ended questions with rationale so students can practice clinical decision-making and faculty can evaluate student thinking with any patient care scenario.
The three complementary levels of KeithRN CRCS (NextGen-Skinny-Unfolding Reasoning) integrate the four clinical reasoning processes of noticing, interpreting, responding, and reflecting of Tanner’s Clinical Judgment Model (CJM).
Margaret Jones is a 75-year-old woman who presents to the emergency department (ED) after having three days of progressive weakness. She denies chest pain but admits to shortness of breath (SOB) that increases with activity.
She also has epigastric pain with nausea that has been intermittent for 20-30 minutes over the last three days. She reports that her epigastric pain has worsened and radiated into her neck. Her husband called 9-1-1, and she was transported to the hospital by emergency medical services (EMS).
