Abstract: The purpose of this study was to assess the self-efficacy of nursing faculty and students related to their potential use of mobile technology and to ask what are the implications for their teaching and learning in practice education contexts. We used a cross-sectional survey design involving students and faculty in three separate nursing education programs in Western Canada. Fifty-six faculty members and students completed the survey in March, 2010. Results showed a high level of ownership and use of mobile devices among our respondents. Their overall average mobile self-efficacy score was 72.11 on a scale of 100, indicating that they are highly confident in their use of mobile technologies and prepared to engage in mobile learning.
