The analyzed article is written by Juin-Shu Lin, Kuan-Chia Lin, Wey-Wen Jiang, and Ting-Ting Lee and is called An Exploration of Nursing Informatics Competency and Satisfaction Related to Network Education. It investigates the relations between the informatics competency of nurses and the levels of their satisfaction related to network education. The authors assume that specialists with advanced computer skills demonstrate better results in their daily activities and have positive attitudes toward network education.
First of all, the authors review literature related to the issue. The analyzed studies evidence that nurses who use computers and specific software applications at work or home have overall better attitudes to technologies (Lin, Lin, Jiang, & Lee, 2007). It is an important factor for modern healthcare as there is a tendency towards the digitalization and use of innovative solutions. For this reason, it becomes vital to provide special education for care providers.
The authors use an online questionnaire distributed among 218 nurses to collect credible data (Lin et al., 2007). They analyze the given aspect and outline the correlation between the ability to work with computers, engage in specific online education, and the overall satisfaction and the level of education. The information proves the idea that more experienced and skilled nurses have better outcomes and can use technologies more effectively.
Altogether, the researchers conclude that for nursing education, it is critical to introduce specific computer training that will improve their ability to function regarding the modern healthcare environment and attitudes to network education.
