This is a quantitative cross-sectional study using the characteristics of innovation diffusion theory to evaluate nurse' acceptance and adoption of digital nursing technology (DNT). Data were collected through questionnaires based on innovation diffusion theory in the wards of a regional hospital in Taiwan from March 21 to May 31, 2022. Results indicated that the higher the innovative characteristics of DNT, the higher the DNT acceptance. Difficulties with network connections contributed to negative experiences and led to recommendations for future system improvement.
