Nurse educators may express a willingness to use educational technology, but they may not have the belief or ability to carry out the technology use in the classroom. The following non-experimental, quantitative study examined factors that predict nurse educators' willingness to accept and use educational technology in the classroom. The sample population for this study included 59 campus-based nurse educators between ages 30 to 63. The nurse educators worked at a multisite college of nursing across 11 nursing campuses located in nine states within the United States. Data for the study was gathered through a survey. Survey items were measured using a 7-point Likert-type response scale. Statistical analysis for this study was conducted using multiple regressions test. The results of the study concluded that perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness were not found to be significant predictors of nurse educators' willingness to accept and use technology. It is recommended that future studies incorporate additional external variables such as pedagogical implication, personal preference, and social influence to identify factors that are unique to this population.
