Objective(s): Computers are becoming more and more common in hospital settings. Since nurses comprise the largest group of potential computer-users, it is important to determine the acceptance of computers by this population. Acquiring a sense of nurses attitude to wards computerization can be a crucial step towards such implementation. The findings will be analyzed in relation to possible contributing variables.

Project Description: The population that will be used for this study is nurses working in a hospital setting in the NWT. Participants will be asked to complete a self-administered questionnaire (1-1/2 pages) and return the completed questionnaire to the researcher. A letter will accompany the questionnaire, explaining the purpose of the study and nature of research to each participant.
