Critical thinking is a crucial set of skills and abilities in nursing. Earlier research has identified the challenges inherent in stimulating the development of critical thinking due to its multifaceted nature, so the need exists to explore ways to nurture critical thinking.

A complex technology-supported guidance model (TSGM) intervention was developed, tested, and evaluated in four sub-studies: (1) a mixed-methods systematic review that explored similar interventions in the field; (2) a developmental study in which a mobile application that constitutes an integral part of the intervention, Technology Optimized Practice Process in Nursing (TOPP-N), was co-created with key stakeholders; (3) a feasibility study that tested the intervention in a real-life setting; and (4) a pragmatic, mixed-methods randomized controlled trial that evaluated the intervention’s effectiveness.

Over a one-year timeframe, a multidisciplinary team of nursing students, nurse preceptors, nurse educators, and app developers codeveloped a complex intervention and a working prototype of the TOPP-N application (sub-study 1,2). The intervention, which aims to support the development of critical thinking, was deemed feasible among first-year undergraduate nursing students in clinical practice (sub-study 3). The randomized controlled trial (sub-study 4) showed that the intervention performed as expected in a larger setting, but, while some promising results emerged, we have not yet confirmed the intervention’s effectiveness in developing critical thinking.

The TSGM intervention has the potential to support the development of critical thinking among undergraduate nursing students in clinical practice, but further investigation is needed to explore its effect.
