Postponed: BGSU NURSING SYMPOSIUM - Clinical Judgement: Thinking Like a Nurse

Tuesday, May 12 at 7:00am to 4:00pm

Bowen-Thompson Student Union, Lenhart Grand Ballroom
Bowen-Thompson Student Union 1001 E Wooster St , Bowling Green, OH 43402

Clinical judgment is the ability of a nurse to make decisions for patients using evidence-based practice, knowledge, skills, experience, communication and reflection.  Student nurses begin developing clinical judgment in nursing school.  After they become working nurses, they continue to progress and enhance this essential skill throughout their career. But how do nurses continue to develop, promote and enhance this essential skill?  Come to our nursing symposium on May 12, 2020, to find out!  We will have experts in the field of nursing education and clinical judgment speaking at this event.  Podium and poster presentations will focus on clinical judgment in nursing, pre-licensure education, staff education, practicing nurses and leadership.  Join us as we explore the newest trends in clinical judgment!
