A comparison of critical thinking skills of baccalaureate nursing students in north east, central and western China was conducted to measure and compare the critical thinking abilities of nursing students based on the California Critical Thinking Disposition Inventory (EETDI). A convenient sampling method was used in each area with 300 participants totally. The baccalaureate nursing student?s critical thinking scores in the three areas were compared for disposition. The findings indicated that in the total as well as the majority of sub-scale areas of critical thinking held by the nursing students of these three areas showed an ambivalence disposition towards critical thinking (mean=277.75 S.D=23.18). The ANOVA indicated that there were statistically significant differences among these three area on the total score as well as six sub-score P<0.01~0.001 with students in the central area holding the highest score (mean=288.94, S.D=21.18). The Tukey?s HSD indicated that the total mean score was statistically higher for students in central area than those for students in north eastern and in western areas (P<0.001). There was also a significance difference between students in the eastern and western area (P<0.01).
