The present study concerns the clinical decision-making process in a naturalistic context and its relationship to the nurses' abilities of critical thinking, creative thinking and emotional intelligence.
Apart from describing a model of the clinical decision-making process in nursing, the results showed its continuous and interactive nature as well as that different patterns of decisions correspond to distinct patterns of those cognitive abilities.
Despite some limitations, we consider that this study has implications in the caring, administration, education and nursing informatics areas.
