Abstract

This paper reports the development and implementation of a web-facilitated nursing information literacy course aiming to promote informatics competencies of intended nurses. This proposed course underwent three distinct phases: initial design, pilot-test and modification, and final implementation. Participants were senior students in a professional nursing college in Southern Taiwan. The researchers conducted the class in a predominately online setting, where all class works took place except for prearranged meetings for needed clarifications and discussions of the unforeseen problems. The results showed that the majority of students perceived positively about this teaching method, gained knowledge and skills about information literacy and were likely to apply these skills in future nursing practices. This teaching model can be a reference for educators when considering to implement informatics curriculum for nursing students to create opportunities for competency before graduation.
