With increase in aging populations and the number of patients with advanced diseases, nurses must respond to diverse and high-level health needs. Nurses must make correct and efficient decisions in diverse and complex clinical situations, using clinical judgment,  and clinical reasoning.  Clinical reasoning is a necessary cognitive and meta-cognitive component of clinical judgment in nursing.  This seminar will present concept of clinical reasoning and the differentiation of clinical reasoning and clinical judgment.
