Nursing is considered as caring for a person in a variety of health related situations. This caring also involves teaching about health and the prevention of illness; hence, nurses play a key role in promoting higher standards of health. To maintain a proper balance between theory and practice, a nurse, has to be updated with current knowledge and practice in the field. This paper addresses the issue of the gap between theory and practice in the nursing profession in the light of literature and makes some recommendations accordingly to close the gap.
