- Background: Current nursing students are mostly from a generation native to information technology use. They are expected to be familiar with the use of technology in telenursing, which is more needed in these times. However, whether their technology use affects their perception of telenursing is unknown. Aim: This study investigates factors that correspond to the telenursing competence perception among nursing students in Indonesia. Method: We use a cross-sectional design. We gather the data with an instrument we have developed and tested for its validity and reliability. The survey is distributed online to nursing students in 12 provinces in Indonesia. The demographic data, school subject, information technology use, and telenursing competence perception are extracted and analyzed using Spearman correlation. Results: We received 185 responses. The data analysis shows that respondents’ age, province of the school, or nursing information system course has no significant correlation with the telenursing competence perception. The use of technology does not significantly correlate with students’ perception of their competence in telenursing. Despite showing a higher correlation, the increased technology use during the coronavirus pandemic shows no significance either. Conclusion: The practice of using information technology among nursing students in their daily activities does not significantly impact their perception of telenursing. We recommend that the nursing schools in Indonesia promote technological advancement and provide more telenursing views in their curriculum.
