Abstract: Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) has a signiflcant role to bridge the knowledge gap between basic nursing education and nursing practice. The CNE providers have to identifu the leaming needs of practicing nurses before they consider the curriculum design and the syllabus ofthe continuous education progranfmes. The aim ofthe survey was to explore the learning needs among the practicing registered nurses working in different clinical units ofa local university hospital. From the total of 260 questionnaires (response rate:34.9%o)returned by the respondents, a number of core nursing subjects and nonnursing subjects were identited as the CNE programmes they considered. To bridge the gaps between theory and practice, the findings indicated that the CNE providers should consider a wide range of subjects to address the learning needs of nurses who are interested in different clinical specialties and a flexible program design is available to facilitate leaming for those working shift duties.
