Abstract: For advance of the quality of medical care, nurses must perform Critical Thinking (CT) processes to clarify the evidence of one's own decision-making explicitly and to validate it. To train CT skills, it is important to analyse characteristics of CT task as a base of our learning scheme design. In this paper, we firstly analyse the characteristics of CT to specify design principle for our learning system based on the analysis. Then, we propose a learning system which facilitates valid decision-making processes. And then, we illustrate a scenario of a learner's system utilisation to encourage CT learning.
