Nurses' attitudes towards computerization in clinical practice.

Author information

School of Nursing Studies, University of Wales College of Medicine, Heath Park, Cardiff.


This descriptive research project was designed to replicate the study of Brodt & Stronge (1986) and to extend and investigate the attitudes of nurses towards computers in clinical practice. Lack of an adequate study into nurses' attitudes to computers was the motive behind this study. The research project was carried out in a district general hospital in the United Kingdom. Data was collected by means of a Likert's type closed-structure attitude-scale questionnaire. The sample consisted of 58 nurses working in a clinical setting. The overall conclusion was that nurses' attitudes to computers were more unfavourable than favourable.
