Nurses, it is claimed, do not engage with articles about Information Technology, although the evidence is that they have poor knowledge of many of the issues involved in the use of information and technology in practice, and poor computer skills. Three pieces of research into nurses and computers have been used to create fictional narratives of nurses’ engagement with computers. They are presented in this way to encourage nurses to read the accounts, to reflect on their own attitudes and practice, and to aid the exploration of alternative possibilities. The basis of this approach is explored, along with the process of producing the narrative fictions.
