My career choice is in the healthcare field and critical thinking is a major part of my daily life professionally. The critical thinking skills that I have learned in this class will help me solve problems and receive the best possible outcome for both me and the people I am serving. I have learned to explore all my options and ask plenty of questions. Doing this will help me see the situation from a full perspective. In school this will help me when exploring topics I do not have much knowledge about. I can ask questions and research the topic so I can get a full understanding of it. This understanding is crucial when completing my assignments. In my career I can use critical thinking to fulfill my duties and deal with problems that may arise while trying to complete my job assignments. I can also use it when serving patients and their families when they come to me with a problem they may have. I would ask them questions to help me get a better grasp of the problem and I would explore all options that are available for us to solve the problem. Practicing my critical thinking skills academically will enable me to use critical thinking to be successful in my career.
