Abstract

Faculty frequently use the Lasater Clinical Judgment Rubric (LCJR) to identify students’ clinical judgment; however, it is unclear whether LCJR scores relate to appropriate nursing action. In a pilot study consisting of senior-level nursing students (N = 22), participants were scored on the LCJR and anticipated nursing actions, and results were analyzed using simple linear regression. There was a statistically significant correlation (r = 0.364) between clinical judgment and nursing action. Results suggest that total LCJR scores may be an indicator of the completion of indicated nursing action.
