DISCUSSIONTopic: Theory – Practice Gap
Think back to the beginning of the course and consider your thoughts on learning about nursing theory. Did you question the usefulness of spending a term learning about theory? Next, consider your current practice environment now that you know more about theory. Is theory used in practice, or is there a theory practice gap that needs to be addressed?
If you think theory is known and used in practice, support your view with evidence.
If you think a theory – practice gap exists, support your view with evidence.
