There is supposedly a gap between theoretical and practical knowledge in nursing. Nursing students experience this gap moving from the educational to the clinical arena. The purpose of this study was to examine whether a project between the educational and the clinical sector may be a learning arena that bridges the gap between theory and practice. The study is in the hermeneutic tradition and has a qualitative design with focus group-interviews. The results showed that the students who participated in the project more easily could transfer theoretical knowledge into practice. They became reflected discussants and discovered that combining the two kinds of knowledge gave the best result.
