Concept mapping is a teaching-learning strategy that can be used to evaluate a nursing student's ability to critically think in the clinical setting. Nursing students who are committed to patient care, seldom express the ideas of reasoning, and critical thinking in health team care. This article is a description of an educational innovation that utilizes concept mapping as a teaching strategy in the development of critical thinking skills among undergraduate nursing students. The purpose of this article was to prepare a child health nursing example for concept mapping in the educational programs of nursing students. The use of this teaching strategy includes shortening the wording and descriptions for each stage of evaluation to promote ease of use for the student in the growth of critical thinking skills.
