The role of the modern clinical nurse is intertwined with information and communication technology (ICT) and adoption of such technology forms an important component of national strategies in health. A study was undertaken of the current
knowledge and future training requirements of nurses in ICT to inform policy to meet national goals of healthcare
informationization. A 68-item questionnaire was distributed to 500 Chinese nurses in a hospital of Traditional Chinese
Medicine. Response rate was 86%. Computers were used by 89.1% of respondents as part of their work-related activities.
For the considerable benefits of ICT to be incorporated fully into the health system, hospitals must pay more attention to the training and education of nurses who are the largest users of that technology.
