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.
