This study examined the intention to use a nursing process application on a smart phone by nursing students who undertake clinical practices, and evaluated the application effect of this program. As research subjects, the study assessed juniors in the college of nursing in Daegu, who had undertaken field training in adult nursing in surgical wards from September 2012 to September 2013. The results showed that the intention to use nursing process application has a significant relationship with effort expectancy, social influence, and self-efficacy. In addition, the nursing process application applied to the research subjects has the largest list of diagnoses, interventions and outcomes regarding acute pain. In addition, the satisfaction with the use of the program was 4.35 points. Through this study, the application of the nursing process presents more opportunities for its use and training in the clinical practice field, and measures that can be applied easily regarding its utilization should be provided.
