This seminar explores experiences from Sweden and the International Collaboration project with Jordan on integrating theory and practice in Nursing Education trough drama. The gap between theory and practice is a well-known international problem within Nursing Education. This has consequences for the students learning as it influences their ability to integrate theory and practice in a meaningful and reflective way. This problematic condition requires suitable pedagogical methods in Nursing Education.
