Abstract

This paper is borne of the increasing interest and relevance of computers in nursing It describes the method, and results obtained from a postal questionnaire survey distributed across the United Kingdom to gain information about the developments in computing in nursing education The results indicate that considerable developments have been made, but that they are more piecemeal than co-ordinated A selection of the results are presented and discussed, and one or two points concerning future proceedings are raised
