Rapid developments in Internet technologies led to changes in every aspect of life. In case of nursing education, awareness and use of the Internet becomes vital. Within this framework nursing students are also required to effectively use Internet to become competent. We designed the study to determine the Internet usage tendencies and perception of the Internet by nursing students and tried to see the effects of easy accessibility and the fast expansion content of Internet. The study was designed a cross-sectional survey. A survey questionnaire was completed by 332 out of 338 students at a military medical academy School of Nursing in Ankara. Results showed that students are accessing Internet mainly for research. Also almost all students think the Internet as a useful tool that contribute positively to their education. In addition, a great percentage of the students considered that the Internet is a necessity for nursing practice. Students reflected positive thoughts and attitudes against Internet that create challenges for nursing curriculum and educators.
