Abstract

Link teachers have historically been employed to encourage the utilisation of nursing theory in the clinical setting. However, evidence suggests that this role has done little to help establish a theory-practice link. This article outlines the concept of a nurse academic linking with a clinical area, which is compatible with their clinical research activities.
