Corlett, Jo; Palfreyman, J. W.; Staines, H. J.; Marr, H.
Nurse Education Today, v23 n3 p183-90 Apr 2003
The effect of the following on bridging the theory-practice gap in nursing education was examined: (1) theory taught by preceptors or nurse educators; (2) nurse educator/preceptor collaboration on content; and (3) immediate clinical placements following theory learning. Preceptors were more effective, collaboration was ineffective, and delay was not detrimental either to medical or rehabilitation placements. (Contains 25 references.) (SK)
