Reviews from Nurse Educators

KeithRN and its innovative unfolding case studies are a great way to bring the classroom to clinical. The first time I did a clinical reasoning case study in class, a student said, ‘It's like we are in clinical.’ The value of the membership is outstanding and well worth it. You won't regret bringing these products to your classroom!

— Kim Smith, MSN, RNCassville Nursing Program Director

I appreciate the different levels of case studies. They really do encourage students to display critical thinking and see the whole picture of patient care.

— Daniel Eaton MSN, RN, Instructor of NursingPenn State University

Keith writes in the same fashion that he practices nursing: with excellence, passion, and a pure unadulterated fervor for the profession. Keith generously shares his nursing knowledge and lived experiences within the context of evidence-based knowledge and practices, while simultaneously urging the reader to examine his or her individual and collective commitment to the profession.

— Cynthia Clark, PhD, RN, ANEF, FAAN, founder of Civility Matters TM and Professor EmeritusBoise State University

We are currently using these case studies as a replacement for clinicals because of COVID. The level of in-depth understanding and interrelationship between pathophysiology, labs, medications, and prioritization of what is and is not important is creating nurses that I would want to take care of me. I recommend this product to any nursing program.

— Brandy Stoffel RN, MSNHealth & Educational Consultants LLC

I love your case studies because it pulls students away from lecture and puts them in real life scenarios in the classroom.
