Materials and Methods: A qualitative content analysis approach was adopted. Individual semi-structured interviews with clinical trainees, faculty members and experienced clinical staffs were done. Data collected until data saturation and concurrently analyzed, assisted by MAXQDA 10
Results: In this study, the five main categories of “tendency toward routine care in clinical settings”, “inefficient teaching-learning”, “lack of confidence in clinical adequacy”, “lack of supportive professional relationships”, and “difference between the nature of theory and practice” were extracted as the barriers of utilizing theoretical knowledge in the clinical  settings.
Conclusion: Transfer of learning is influenced by several factors with different natures. This phenomenon creates in a structure composed of the climate of clinical setting, lack of professional support in workplace, distrust and contradiction between the nature of theory and practice.
