She proposed that one could gain knowledge and skills ("knowing how") without ever learning the theory ("knowing that").

She further explains that the development of knowledge in applied disciplines such as medicine and nursing is composed of the extension of practical knowledge (know how) through research and the characterization and understanding of the "know how" of clinical experience.

She conceptualizes in her writing about nursing skills as experience is a prerequisite for becoming an expert. 7 Domains of Nursing Practice 1. Helping role
