Introduction: As an educator, I believe my role is to teach and improve skills that are as important as the ones we use to read, write and calculate. These skills are social skills. My research explores critical thinking as an element of problem-solving, inquiry, reasoning and reflective thinking. It then explores how these can attribute to making healthy, ethical and moral judgements. Freire expressed that ‘Critical thinking contrasts with naive thinking’ when he refers to its role in dialogue, communication and true education.
Although critical thinking skills can be used in exposing misconceptions and bad reasoning, critical thinking can also play an important role in cooperative reasoning and constructive task. Besides, critical thinking also known as "complex thinking" and "high-order thinking". The ability to think critically calls for a higher order thinking than simply the ability to recall information. Critical thinkers need to have knowledge of concepts to an application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation. Central of critical thinking is the ability to think "outside" a piece of writing.
This is a misconception. Critical thinking is very good with considering "out-of-the-box", testing agreement and seeking after less well known approaches.

Critical thinking brings important issues out and presents them clearly by gathering and considering important information. This type of thinking will lead to well thought out conclusions. It also requires an opened mind and effective conclusions. Critical thinkers take charge of their own mind and this allows taking charge of their lives. They also understand that humans are naturally flawed so they tend to be rational and reasonable while knowing they can fall prey to mistakes in many different ways, like prejudgment or self-interest.
Ideally concepts are essential to our life, we just may not notice the use of them (Paul & Elder, 2012). To become a critical thinker people must develop theories in order to form the idea to carry out the thought. We use concepts, ideas, and theories to interpret data, facts, and experiences to answer questions, solve problems, and resolve issues (Paul & Elder, 2012). This is part of the eight elements that comprise the thought process. The goal in my future is to resolve the issue of uneducated Surgical Technologist hiring in to our facility.
Learning things with this method doesn’t require critical thinking. Despite being pushed towards this learning process, the two students expressed their opposition to it.

There are many aspects to nursing, but the two that will be discussed in this paper are critical thinking and concept mapping. Critical thinking is essential to skilled nursing; therefore, it is essential to nursing education. It is believed skilled nursing depends upon a well-reasoned philosophy of nursing rooted in a deep and rich conception of critical thinking.
