Introduction: Since the theories are considered an indicator of science and one of the nurses practice evidence, they are in the headlines of different levels of nursing courses but various studies show that the application of theories is not seen in practice and education actually. Therefore, this study has to determine the barriers of nursing theories in practice by nurses. Method: This analytic descriptive study was conducted in 2014 to investigate the reasons for the lack of nursing theories in practice from the perspective of 48 nursing MAs and Ph.D in nursing students of Tarbiat Modares and Shahid Beheshti Universities with clinical experience were selected by the convenience sampling method. Assessment tools, a questionnaire based on the utility factor questionnaire (Maggy 1994) and by reviewing the literature on six areas: personal barriers, educational barriers, personal theorist barriers, texts and documents related to the theory barriers, political and social adaptation barriers and usefulness perceived barriers to the nursing theory develop and is designed. Collected data by descriptive statistics and Gamma and Phi and Cramer's V tests analyzed with the SPSS ver20. Results: Most of the study subjects were female (58/3%), single (60/4%) and senior graduate students (56/25%) who were average a history of working 7/38 years. From the participants' vision, personal barriers (54/53%), such as dissatisfaction and reluctance in using nursing theory (73/4%), limited learning theory to master's and doctoral (69/68%) and the need for communication skills for implementation of this theory (69/27%), obtaining the highest score as the most important barriers to the implementation of nursing theory in clinical practice were identified. Conclusion: According to the findings, it seems that in-service training courses on the principles, rules and standards for nurses in dealing with patients, will be able to modify and enhance nurses' attitudes and encourages nurses to use nursing theories.
