Abstract

The dispute surrounding the existence or not of a gap between the theory and practice of nursing is one that has occupied and at times polarised the profession for decades. The authors of this article, one from England and the other from New Zealand, met during a break between sessions at a research conference held in Surfers Paradise Australia.
