Abstract: This paper presents the results of a brief study of Northern Ireland nurse educators' perceptions of information technology (IT) in nurse education. The study focuses on training, computer use, student assessment, and future trends. The results indicate that although there remain tutors who have not received any formal training in computer use, the majority want to use computers and recognize their need for competence. While training would pear to have a positive effect on their perceived level of competence and computer knowledge, the study identifies factors which contributes to the restricted use of computers assisted learning (CAL). Student assessment varies across the province and findings of the study indicate that although many changes have taken place, staff expect more in the futures. They identify a need for policies that include training programmes, competences assessment, appropriates technology, and networking.
