The Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the Health Information Technology Act (2009) in America had recommended that electronic health records (EHRs) should be fully adopted by 2014. This has urged educational institutions to prepare healthcare professionals to be competent in using electronic health records (EHRs) while they are in schools. To equip nursing students with competency in using EHRs, an electronic health record for nursing education (EHRNE) has been developed and integrated it into nursing curricula. The purposes of the study were to investigate the factors influencing nursing students' acceptance of the EHRs in nursing education using the extended Technology Acceptance Model with self-efficacy as a conceptual framework. The study is a descriptive study design using self-reported questionnaires with 212 student participants. The IBM SPSS and AMOS 22.0 were used to analyze the data. The results showed that attitude toward using the EHRNE was the most influential factor on students' acceptance. The preliminary findings suggested that to enhance the students' acceptance of the EHRNE, cultivation of a positive attitude toward using this EHR as well as increasing the perceived usefulness is very important. Also, the study's framework could be used in guiding learning health informatics and be applied to nursing students.

This article deals with the results of a probing study in the framework of the education and technology master of research in educational science of the university of Cergy-Pontoise. This study focuses on the use of audio capture by first year nursing students in the development of their knowledge and therefore in the development of their professional skills. By using the model of the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT), the results of this study have helped to identify the levers (easy-to-use digital resources, computer skilled learners, multiplicity of computer equipment of the learners) and bridles (the relative gain when using this resource, the lack of human interaction, a resource which is time consuming) in the use of audio capture. A more extensive study could focus on these bridles in order to promote the use of audio capture by learners in the hybrid system of nursing training.
