Abstract

This study surveys computer courses in undergraduate nursing schools in Turkey. To accomplish this, the investigator gave an assignment to first-year students at the Ege University School of Nursing as part of a computer course in 2003-2004. The assignment consisted of having students use their computer skills and do research on the Internet to obtain information about computer classes at other Turkish nursing schools. The objective of this assignment was to correspond by e-mail with first-year students at these institutions. Because of this assignment, at least 70 contacts were established, and information has been exchanged between nursing students at 45 different universities in Turkey. This study shows that one method used by undergraduate nursing schools in Turkey to educate their students in modern nursing practices is to integrate computer courses in their curricula, thereby providing students important practical technology skills.
