This article presents an adapted nontraditional clinical activity for use in patient care clinical experiences. The Two-Minute Assessment With Debriefing incorporates peer collaboration and attributes of debriefing, including assimilation, accommodation, and anticipation. Nursing students in acute care facilities are assigned to either traditional or nontraditional care, with the group ideally split in half. The use of nontraditional clinical activities with reflection has been supported as a strategy to engage higher order thinking about patient care while allowing focused faculty time with students in traditional patient care. © 2020 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
