|Abstract:||ABSTRACT Introduction: The rapid development of technology encourages learning methods that are more practical, efficient, and fast. E-learning is believed to be an effective learning method for nurses in the hospital environment. The e-learning module requires adequate facilities and positive learner characteristics. Understanding nurses' needs and learning perspectives will facilitate e-learning implementation, especially for continuing nursing education. Objectives: This study aimed to analyze the relationship between experiences and the importance of e-learning, barriers, motivation, and nurses' attitudes towards the e-learning method in a private hospital. Methods: This study applied a quantitative method with a correlation design and conducted a purposive sampling technique with 66 samples. This study used an attitude questionnaire towards e-learning which was adapted from Chong. Results: This study revealed that most of the nurses already had experienced e-learning (98.5%). In addition, half of the nurses had positive attitudes towards e-learning (53%), almost two-thirds of nurses were motivated (74.2%), more than half perceived that e-learning is less critical (51.5%), and nurses reported a few obstacles to participating in e-learning (57.6%). Moreover, there was no significant relationship between experience, barriers, motivation, the importance of e-learning, and nurses' attitudes towards e-learning (p value> 0.05). On the other hand, nurses also reported the main barriers to participating in e-learning included lack of time and minimum computer access to the internet (> 70%). Discussion: It is noted that nurses have the motivation to continue learning in the scope of clinical practice using e-learning. Only some nurses show a positive attitude towards elearning. Thus, some improvements are needed to support e-learning for nurses, such as more time for learning, additional knowledge about computer use, and adequate internet networking.
