Holdninger til brugen af it i teoretisk uddannelse og klinisk praksis hos nystartede sygeplejestuderende

Abstract : This PhD dissertation focuses on newly enrolled nursing students' attitudes to ICT in education and clinical practice. The background originated from the author's years of wondering, why many students expressed verbal surprise and resistance to be taught ICT and Nursing and Health Informatics. "Why should we learn about computers, we are here to learn to care for people" was the objection. The dissertation examines how first year students articulate their views and ideas about the use of ICT in both theoretical education and clinical practice. The thesis is mainly descriptive and to a certain extent explanatory. It has a sociological approach inspired by Pierre Bourdieu's and Steiner Kvale's methodology. Data collection includes multiple written sources, questionnaire and focus group interviews and informant data to construct the field of ICT in nursing schools and the students' positions therein. The dissertation comes in 2 volumes. Volume 1 contains the dissertation it self and Volume 2 contains the appendices with detailed documentation. The Volume 1 is structured in five parts, besides References and Appendix Overview. 1. Part 1 - Introduction: Contains introduction, literature review, theory and method description, and selfsocio analysis. 2. Part 2 - The Educational ICT-field: Is a presentation and construction of the ICT-educationel field from Primary- and Secundary School to nursing education in the period from 1970 to 2001. 3. Part 3 - Data collection and analysis: Presents the physical setup of ICT in tree Nursing Schools, Examine questionnaire data on nursing students' attitudes toward the use of ICT in education and nursing, presents an Informants data analysis and analysis of five focus group interviews conducted in the three nursing schools.

Part 4 - Conclusions: Presents four constructed types of Nursing Students and their ICT habitus and ICT capital. The types are "The Advocat", "The Skeptic", "The Opponent" and "The Critic."
