Description

As hospitals increasingly use e-learning to educate nurses, how the nurses feel about e-learning has been overlooked. This phenomenological qualitative research involved the use of semi-structured interviews with thirteen registered nurses from a community teaching hospital in the Northeast. These nurses were asked to describe their experiences with e-learning. Interview questions focused on their thoughts and experiences with e-learning. Participants were voluntary and interviews were conducted on the phone and recorded on an iPhone app called Tape a Call. Interviews were taped, transcribed and analyzed for recurring themes. Data were validated by using another experienced qualitative researcher and NVivo software. Participants reported different views of e-learning. The themes that arose were participants: find e-learning helpful with learning, would like adjunct material with the e-learning, had to complete e-learning during work time, computers do not always support the e-learning programs, and some participants had no recall of the e-learning assignments
