Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this quantitative correlational study was to determine if there is a relationship between nursing faculty’s acceptance and intent to use technology, with the adoption of informatics in nursing education. The framework that guided this study was the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology 2. The study was guided by three research questions. Research question 1 asked the relationship between nursing faculty use of informatics in nursing education? There is significant evidence to support the claim there is a relationship between faculty’s user acceptance/behavioral intent to use technology and the adoption of informatics in nursing education.

Research question 2 asked the relationship between the constructs of UTAUT2 and the behavior intent of the nursing faculty to use technology? The results support a relationship between the UTUAT2 constructs and behavioral intention to use technology thus the alternate hypothesis was supported.

Research question 3 asked the relationship between age, gender, and experience of nurse faculty moderators that influence performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence, facilitating conditions, hedonic motivation, price value, and habit on personal behavior intent to use technology. The results indicated there is not significant evidence to support the claim that there is a relationship between behavioral intent to use technology and the age, gender, or experience of faculty.

The results suggests that faculty’s personal and professional use of technology influences the integration of informatics into curriculum. Recommendations for practice include incorporating an informatics champion within each school of nursing to enhance faculty members comfort with technology.
