The heart gets stopped when it is connected to this machine.<br /><em><strong>Objectives:</strong></em> The objectives of the study were to assess the knowledge and practice scores of staff nurses, find the association between their knowledge and practice scores with selected demographic variables, and the correlation between their knowledge and practice scores. <br /><em><strong>Methodology:</strong></em> A quantitative research approach with a descriptive correlational design was used. 60 staff nurses working at SKIMS, Soura were selected by non-probability purposive sampling. Assessment of knowledge and practice was done by using a ‘self-structured knowledge questionnaire’ and ‘non-participatory checklist’ respectively. <br /><em><strong>Results:</strong></em> The study showed that the majority of the study subjects had good knowledge regarding the care of children with open heart surgery and the majority of the study subjects had a good practice. There was no statistically significant association was found between the knowledge score of study subjects and their selected demographic variables and between their practice score and demographic variables<br /><em><strong>Conclusion:</strong> </em>The study findings revealed that the % of the practice score (93.3%) of study, subjects was more as compared to the knowledge score (85.0%), which shows that there is a gap between knowledge and practice regarding the care of children with open heart surgery, So it is concluded that there is a need to organize seminars and workshops regarding the nursing care of children with open heart surgery to bridge the gap between knowledge and practice.</p> <p><em><strong>How to cite this article:</strong></em><br />Bassen S, Bano Z, Akhter A, Jaan Y, Ahmad I, Kachroo M.

The development and continuation of the professional status in Nursing should include an increased awareness of the need for a research-based practice and scientific knowledge generated from it to guide and improve clinical practice.<br /><em><strong>Recommendation:</strong></em> Future research on these barriers/ facilitators and their relationships with occupational and socio-cultural factors among nurses and Physicians is recommended. Also translating the Nursing Research findings into implementation with the help of administrative support can generate a better attitude towards Evidence-Based Practice.<br /><em><strong>Conclusion:</strong></em> Enhancing the knowledge of the Nurses with the agreement and support of the administration about Evidenced Based Nursing practice can to a great extent help in bridging the gap between Research and Research Utilization.</p> <p><strong>How to cite this article:</strong> <br />Manocha M.
