SANCHO CANTUS, D.  and  PRIETO CONTRERAS, L.. Theories and models in clinical nursing practice: An impossible relationship?. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.27, pp.292-298. ISSN 1695-6141.

Introduction: In the last few decades, Spanish Nursing has suffered several changes that have contributed to alesser or greater extent to the development of this discipline. However, today there is still a barrier that hindersand delays this development: the equation consisting of theory and practice. Development of the subject. There are several factors which influence the feedback between these two elements and have an impact on the growth that nursing itself undergoes. Nowadays, we are in a period of inflection in which it is necessary to combine both aspects with a dual objective: to put into daily practice the current theoretical models which are available and to base the clinical decisions on scientific evidence which can support our proceedings. Moreover, it is intended that nursing uses its own corpus of knowledge to learnand profit from it in order to develop in all its areas. Conclusions: Nowadays, nursing is immersed in a complex process of conceptualization of its own discipline.There is a wide range of possibilities which must inevitably be accompanied by the acceptance of certain challenges for which individuals must be trained.
