Critical thinking for nursing students is one of the principal abilities ensuring their future success. Its importance is conditional upon the connection between such a skill and evidence-based practice that helps to develop strategies (“Why is evidence-based practice important,” 2018). In the article, Cui et al. (2018) examine the interrelation between these two concepts. The researchers claim that it is vital to assess critical thinking in nursing students participating in EBN teaching mode to trace its overall impact (Cui et al., 2018). The conducted meta-analysis provides nursing educators with comprehensive information on how to improve their courses for developing critical thinking skills among students in the process.
