Neurological System A comprehensive neurological nursing assessment includes neurological observations, growth and development including fine and gross motor skills, sensory function, seizures and any other concerns.
Clinical judgment requires clinical reasoning across time about the particular, and because of the relevance of this immediate historical unfolding, clinical reasoning can be very different from the scientific reasoning used to formulate, conduct, and assess clinical experiments.
Blood pressure increases with increased intracranial pressure. Evaluating Evidence Before research should be used in practice, it must be evaluated. Aristotle linked experiential learning to the development of character and moral sensitivities of a person learning a practice.
Whether in a fast-paced care environment or a slower-paced rehabilitation setting, thinking and acting with anticipated futures guide clinical thinking and judgment.

In this kind of reasoning-in-transition, gains and losses of understanding are noticed and adjustments in the problem approach are made. Neonates should also be assessed for presence of marks from forceps or vacuum delivery device, or presence of cephalohematoma or caput succedaneum.

Bourdieu 29 calls the recognition of the situation central to practical reasoning.

As such, the validity, reliability, and generalizability of available research are fundamental to evaluating whether evidence can be applied in practice. The investigators are encouraged by teaching strategies that integrate the latest scientific knowledge and relevant clinical evidence with clinical reasoning about particular patients in unfolding rather than static cases, while keeping the patient and family experience and concerns relevant to clinical concerns and reasoning.CTS Tools for Faculty and Student Assessment.
