Abstract

The ability to think critically, to reflect on and in action, to evaluate and act upon evidence are all highly regarded in nurse education. In one form or another they form part of the core of graduate nursing and the foundation upon which skills and competences are built and deployed (Caldwell and Grobbel, 2013; Daly, 1998; McCartney, 2017). In this discussion we consider the value of a related, but distinctly different capacity - Arendt's (1971) notion of thinking, with its emphasis on thought as a moral and ethical endeavour.
