Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore the predictors of hospital nurses’ intent to use web-based continuing learning. A total of 187 in-service nurses from hospitals in Taiwan were surveyed. The work environment variables were measured, and the Social Factor Scale and Attitudes toward Web-based Continuing Learning Survey (AWCL) were administered to assess the external and internal predictors for explaining the nurses’ intent to use web-based continuing learning. The stepwise regression was conducted to examine the predictors. The results of regression revealed that nurses in medical centers were less likely to undertake such learning. Social factors can positively predict nurses’ intent to use web-based continuing learning. However, other external factors such as ownership of the hospital, access to the Internet at work, and weekly work hours cannot predict nurses’ use intention. In addition, attitude about perceived ease of use was a positive predictor for nurses’ intent to use web-based continuing learning.
