Abstract (2. Language): 
Aim of this study was to determine nurse managers’ views and attitudes towards health information technology. The study was planned as a mixed methods study. Sample of the study consisted of 52 nurse managers. Participants were selected from the nurse managers working at training and research hospitals of a university in Turkey. Content analysis was used for data obtained from face-to-face interviews, and data obtained from other data collection tools were analyzed by frequency, percentage distributions, means, and standard deviations. According to the results obtained from the study; respondents noted strengths of health information technology, such as easing workflow and minimizing medication errors through better documentation. Perceived weaknesses included long waits to obtain patients’ medications when the system was busy, and time lost entering information into the system. Mean score for attitudes about health information technology was 4.90 (±0.90) out of 7. Nurse managers experienced difficulties with learning and perceptions about the system, teaching a new system to team members, and adapting when a new system replaced the old one.
Abstract (Original Language): 
Bu çalışmanın amacı hemşire yöneticilerin sağlık bilgi teknolojilerine yönelik bilgi ve tutumlarının belirlenmesidir. Çalışma karma yöntem araştırması olarak planlanmıştır. Çalışmanın örneklemini 52 hemşire yönetici oluşturmuştur. Katılımcılar, bir üniversitenin eğitim ve araştırma hastanelerinde çalışan hemşire yöneticilerinden seçilmiştir. Yüz yüze görüşmeden elde edilmiş veriler için içerik analizi yapılmış olup, diğer veri toplama araçlarından elde edilen veriler sıklık, yüzde dağılımı, ortalama ve standart sapma ile değerlendirilmiştir. Çalışmadan elde edilen sonuçlara göre; katılımcılar sağlık bilgi teknolojinin güçlü yönleri olarak, iş akışını kolaylaştırma ve daha iyi belgelerle ilaç hatalarını en aza indirmeyi belirtmişlerdir. Algılanan zayıf yönler ise sistem meşgulken hastaların ilaçlarını almak için uzun süre beklemeyi ve sisteme bilgi girmenin zaman kaybını içermektedir. Sağlık bilgi teknolojisi ile ilgili tutumların ortalama puanı 7 üzerinden 4,90’dır (±0,90). Hemşire yöneticiler, sistemi öğrenme ve algılama; ekip üyelerine yeni bir sistem öğretme ve eski sistemin yerine yeni bir sistemi yerleştirme ile ilgili güçlükler yaşadığını belirtmiştir.
