Critical Thinking is a concept that is taught in many forms in nursing education in Scottish Higher Education Institutions. Defining the concept itself can be challenging (Moon, 2001). Reflective practice, critical appraisal, applied critical thinking techniques and more are used in the teaching, learning and assessment of nursing students. This paper argues that there is an untapped potential for education and beyond through the recognition of issues surrounding critical thinking and the positive actions that could be derived from educational strategies.
