PIEDRAHITA SANDOVAL, Laura Elvira  y  ROSERO PRADO, Ana Lucia. Theory-praxis relationship in education of nursing professionals: an integrative literature review. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.47, pp.679-706.  Epub 01-Jul-2017. ISSN 1695-6141.

This article presents an integrative review of studies written in Spanish, Portuguese and English, which have been published in journals indexed in the databases Scielo, MEDLINE, CINAHL, lilacs, CUIDEN, Ovid, Pub Med and TESEO, between 2000 and 2014.

This study aimed to identify, in scientific literature, the problems of the theory-praxis relationship in the education of nursing professionals. 35 documents were selected, based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. In order to analyze them, the studies were arranged according to common aspects such as: document type, country of origin, author, year of publication, key concepts and/or definitions. This study made it possible to group the data into thematic units according to three categories: studies related to teachers and the curriculum, studies related to students, and studies related to care nurses, from their professional practice. Results indicate that complexity of the theory-praxis relationship is evident, demonstrating that there is no transfer of classroom-imparted theoretical knowledge to the actual care practice. Moreover, we highlight the inconspicuous production of studies related to this subject, considering its importance and its constant concern to teachers, students, and care nurses
