Abstract

This case study investigates the digital attitudes, skills and development needs of nursing students when using mobile tablet devices to assess studentnurse competencies in clinical practice. Participants have been asked to complete a bespoke skills-based digital competence self-assessment questionnaire based on the EU DIGCOMP framework; this enabled a baseline for both individual and group. The individual characteristics of students were further explored through comments and their reflective diaries results show a complex, highly-individual profile for each student while the group exhibits common characteristics. Further work is proposed to investigate intricacies on how students perceive and use technologies in education and daily lives.
