Abstract
People over time, have devised various techniques for communicating their thoughts, needs and desires to others in every aspect of life. The emergence of ICT has affected all aspects of human life, including education at all levels. ICT knowledge, accessibility and use are linked with higher efficiency and higher productivity. Undergraduate nursing students occupy a central position in both the educational and health care systems of any country. This study was carried out to investigate the accessibility and use of Information Communication Technology (ICT) in the enhancement of nursing education among nursing students at Madonna University, Rivers state. A descriptive cross-sectional survey design was used. 260 undergraduate students from level 200 to level 500 in the Department of Nursing comprised the sample for the study. A questionnaire was the instrument for data collection. Data were subjected to descriptive statistics and analyzed using Chi-square. Probability value less than 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Majority of the students (80.5%) had knowledge of ICT.  Respondents had access to the following ICT: computer (73.0%), Internet (79.8%), and e-mail (57.7%). The Internet activities mostly performed by the students were: browsing 386(89.8%), chatting with friends 274(63.7%) and e-mailing 262(60.9%). Google is the most common search engine used by students 393(91.4%). High cost of ICT (62.2%) and irregular power supply (57.1%) were major factors that affect access to and use of ICT negatively. There was no significant difference (p  0.05) in the access to ICT types among male and female nursing students. Findings of this study revealed that there is still a need to provide ICT materials and training at a subsidized rate in order to encourage use in nursing education....
