Abstract
Advancement in technology has increased the proliferation of Smartphone use across all ages, and in turn, increased people’s accessibility to social media and internet outlets. Abuse of mobile phones has led to addiction among different groups, particularly, the higher institution students. Hence, the need for this study to investigate the prevalence and implications of phone addiction among healthcare students in UITH school complex, Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria. The relative influence of gender and age was also examined on respondents’ perceptions. The quantitative nature of this study enabled it to adopt a descriptive survey design method. The proportionate sampling technique was used to select 296 respondents from 9 schools that constituted the healthcare institution. The“prevalence and implications for phone addiction questionnaire” were used to collect data for this study. Validity of the instrument was established by healthcare experts while a Cronbach reliability coefficient of 0.85 was obtained, which made the instrument reliable for use. The data collected were analyzed using percentage to present the respondents' demographic profile, mean and standard deviation to answer the research questions while inferential statistics of t-test and Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) statistics were used to test the hypotheses formulated at 0.05 level of significance. The results of the study indicated that there is a high prevalence of phone addiction among healthcare students in UITH, Ilorin and some of the implications are procrastination, poor concentration and poor school performance. Gender and age have no relative influence on respondents’ perception of the prevalence and implications of phone addiction. It was therefore recommended, among others, that intervention strategies should be centered on reducing the level of phone use among the students so as to enhance their educational performances and avert other accompanying implications.
