Learning takes place in an every individual during their lifetime irrespective of the volume learnt. Nursing is a skill based profession. Student nurses are provided with adequate learning experiences to master the skills to practice nursing. That is acquired profoundly with experience based on sound knowledge. Reflective thinking is a strategy which all nurse teachers are expected to teach all students and render opportunities to acquire experience through it. Reflective thinking results in self awareness, self improvement and empowerment. This article is headed by elaborating on experience based learning, their components and significance in learning. And Kolb's experiential learning theory is explained. It is further highlighted with the support of research studies on the consequences of providing desirable and undesirable learning experiences. The challenge for nurse educators in choosing learning experiences has been emphasized as it is believed that both positive and negative behaviors can be easily adopted by the students. Therefore, meticulous planning is essential to obtain strengthened student learning, professionalization and socialization into the professional role. The goal of nursing cannot be accomplished alone; therefore, it is vital and integral for the nursing community to remain united always.
