Bloom's Taxonomy: Nursing Education
Like most areas of life, education has increased in complexity. Many new philosophies and a deeper understanding of the human mind have brought about a myriad new ways to educate students for their future lives and careers. Further complicating this is the fact that not all students respond uniformly to the same educational system or method. In addition, specific areas of study and their related professions have seen changes in focus and value systems, which need to be taken into account in the classroom. This is also true of nursing education. For this reason, Bloom's taxonomy of education has been found to apply well in terms of the cognitive, affective,...
101). The focus of this domain is learned facts, including recall and recognition of these facts. The hierarchy of categories for this domain, from simple to complex, includes remembering, understanding, applying, analyzing, evaluating, and creating. What this means for the nursing student is that the simple recall of facts is only the first step within this domain. Educators need to focus on this domain in such a way that, ultimately, students will be able to use learned facts in order to create new knowledge that is applicable to specific situations encountered in practice (Mathur, 2012). The cognitive knowledge dimensions also imply an ultimate ability to apply critical thinking when working with learned facts. These dimensions include factual, conceptual, procedural, and metacognitive knowledge (Jones and Bartlett Publishers, n.d., p. 104).
Second, Bloom has identified the affective domain of education, which includes feelings, values, appreciation, enthusiasm, motivations, and attitudes (Jones and Bartlett Publishers, n.d., p. 105). Since nursing is primarily focused on work with and around people, these feelings, values, and attitudes are of great importance in the process of health management. The categories included in his domain are receiving phenomena, responding to phenomena, valuing…
Nurse Critical Thinking Critical Thinking and Other Intellectual Skills: Documented Benefits and Skill Application in Nursing There are many academic skills that are necessary for nursing students that also serve nurses well in professional practice.

Blueprint for Teaching Ethics in Nursing Practice The development of a test blueprint is an important component in teaching practice just like architecture is to the building and construction industry. One of the major reasons for the development and use of a test blueprint in the teaching profession is the differences in understanding and perspectives of the term "test" by students and teachers alike. Moreover, teachers and students are increasingly
Lesson Plan - Nurses The context in which the lesson plan will be implemented will be a classroom setting with nursing students attending a graduate level course in nursing. The classroom does not necessarily have to be a physical classroom but can be taught in a clinical environment as well. The lesson plan can also be adapted to small groups or large classroom sizes. For this particular paper, the lesson plan
At times, even though the research may be complicated by varying definitions of homelessness, researchers are establishing methods for estimating the size of the homeless population, which includes people who have nowhere to go; at risk of losing housing through eviction or institutional discharge (Drury, 2008). Case Study Methodology In the case study methodology, a form of qualitative descriptive research, according to M. Dereshiwsky (1999) in "Electronic Textbook - Let Us
(Eljamal; Stark; Arnold; Sharp, 1999) To conclude, it be said that if we will not be able to master imparting the capability to think in a developed form, our profession, as well as perhaps our world, would be influenced and taken over by someone who would be able to outsmart us to find it out. We would in that case not only remain thinking as to what happened but would
