Theory–Practice Gap

The book discusses the theory-practice gap in detail in many chapters. As you’ve read throughout the course, there is ongoing discussion about the connection between theory and practice and the application in day-to-day nursing activities. This assignment is designed to illustrate that although there may be a gap, other factors play an important role in decision making and each aspect of theory, research, and practice experience are integral to well-rounded patient care.

Create a visual representation of your theory-practice relationship or gap using the diagram below by replacing the text in each box below to illustrate your scenario.

Note: Use names, citiations, or brief explanations only. The narrative summary should include desciptions and more detailed discussion about each concept in the scenario.
