The growth of national electronic networks for education and research will significantly impact the nursing profession [1]. Increased electronic connectivity will improve the ability of the end-user researcher and educator to access data processing capabilities and other researchers/faculty electronically to advance scholarship and educational activities [2,3,4]. The significance of the trend can be a reconceptualization of the research and educational process. It is, therefore, critical that nursing students and nurse clinicians become knowledgeable users of electronic networks which focus on quality health care delivery.
