Abstract
Background: The purpose of the nursing practicum course is to enable students to integrate cognitive, psychomotor, and affective skills into adequate professional competency before starting clinical work. With advances in information technology, the e-portfolio focusing on individualized learning, reflection, and self-management has received positive attention, and the nursing profession has adopted it as part of nursing education. Aim: This study, based on the Technology Acceptance Model 2 explored the needs and perceptions of student nurses regarding the use of e-portfolio in the Last Mile Practicum Course (LMPC). Method: Five focus groups each comprised of ten to twelve student volunteers participated in interviews. Resulting data was analysed through content analyses aimed at evaluating the perceptions of e-portfolio. Results: The results revealed four key research themes: (1) anticipated functions achieved, (2) ease of uploading data and showcasing learning results (3) functionality extensions to enhance mobile learning, and (4) policy guidelines and plagiarism prevention. The majority of students identified that the e-portfolio system must facilitate positive rapport between nursing students and instructors, while establishing clear internship goals. The e-portfolio should also provide a user-friendly and stable system function for data upload. The e-learning content should be linked with the teaching system used by the practicum hospital and offer additional functionality. The mobile versions of the e-portfolio technology should be developed to increase accessibility and user policy guidelines for teachers and students as well as antiplagiarism measures should be implemented. Conclusions: E-portfolio assists in integrating knowledge, skills, and achievement recognition into the learning process. The nursing students’ suggestions for e-portfolio included: a user friendly/useful system and a policy of use and antiplagiarism to promote adoption of e-portfolios. The use of e-portfolio with upgrades can enable learning of clinical competencies by students in the Last Mile Practicum Course in preparation for their future nursing practic.
