Today, in the digital age, we are committed to prepare the future nurse for the information technology-rich workplace, and to help them reducing the "shock reality" upon arriving at the clinical setting. The main aim of the study is to promote the knowledge of Information Competencies Technology among nurses' educators and student. The method was an action research process that started by collecting the data--by literature review, nurses' interviews and students' survey, analyzing and interpreting the data, and developing a plan of action, including curriculum change for the students and workshops for the nurse educators. Two benefits were driven from this action: updating and developing academic courses and adopting pedagogic tools for nurses' educators. In conclusion, the overarching theme of this project is the need for Information Technology to be integrated within the larger body of the nursing learning program, and its implication for educators and students.
