The Applicability of Information Technology and the Communication in Nursing Undergraduate Education
Objective: to understand the use of information and communication technology (ICT) as a pedagogical resource for teaching-learning process in nursing through the discourses of professors, and to identify the types of technology used as a tool to strengthen the teaching-learning process. Method: exploratory descriptive and qualitative study, guided by Grounded Theory; the sample consisted of twelve professors of nursing; data collection was conducted between February and May 2013, through the interview technique; the analysis was developed simultaneously with the collection, allowing the formation of categories and subcategories. Results: the nursing faculty expressed the knowledge dimension of ICT experienced in practice, recognizing it as an aid in the theoretical-practical activities. Conclusion: this technology should be further studied and explored in healthcare and, more specifically, in the training of nurses.
