[Clinical Session Presentation] This paper explores experiences from the International Collaboration project with focus on integrating theory and practice in Nursing Education trough experiential learning such as educational drama and case methodology. 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. Furthermore there are problems such as large number of students, teacher-centred learning rather than student-centred learning and often no learning environment in health care practice. The student-centred approach involves a philosophical belief and vision to create learning environments that allow learners to develop their professional competence through experiential learning. The project includes experiences and results from using an educational ward in Boras, Sweden, and developing the course ?Integrating Theory and Practice in Nursing Education? in Amman, Jordan 2006-2007. Interviews with the course participants indicates that they developed pedagogical skills and insights about different teaching methods, for example how to integrate theory, practice and student centred learning in Nursing Education.
