Introduction The onset of Personally Controlled Electronic Health Records in Australia demand healthcare decision making processes to comprise, understand and accept electronic health records (EHR). Nurses play a key, central role in the healthcare decision making process and their perceptions and attitudes of EHRs are significant [1], which develop during their academic life. However, studies aimed at nursing students’ attitudes of EHRs are very limited [2-4]. A proper understanding of these attitudes and how they evolve with academic progress is important. This paper presents results from a survey conducted at a leading University in Queensland, Australia as a first step to filling this gap.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
