Abstract: 

Introduction: Along with the advent of the Internet, there has been a growth of virtual education. This method of learning has created opportunities outside the borders of a country or state for everyone. It is impossible to be successful in virtual training unless we consider individuals’ viewpoints toward it. Despite this fact, less attention has been paid to students’ attitudes in the published studies. The aim of this study was to investigate Kerman nursing students’ attitudes toward virtual learning.
Method: This study is descriptive study of 114 undergraduate and postgraduate students of Kerman Nursing and Midwifery College were selected by census method in 2009. Data collected from the questionnaire: 1. Demographic information 2. A researcher-made questionnaire of attitude toward virtual learning and analyzed by SPSS software (ver=17) at the significant level of p
£0.05 using descriptive statistics and analytic statistics (independent t test, ANOVA, Pearson correlation).
Results: The average age of students participating in the study was 22.29
± 4.2 and the mean scores of students attitude was 3.2 ± 0.4. % 85 of students had a positive attitude towards Virtual Learning. In demographic variables, only age has related negatively with nursing attitude. The older students had more negative attitude to virtual learning (P = 0.018 and r = - 0.22) Conclusion: Although in our country, virtual learning is a new concept but in general, students’ attitudes to Virtual Learning were positive and were interested to work in a virtual environment so we can say that Virtual Learning can be associated with official acceptance among students and universities.
