Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted in 2016, employing a research model based on technology acceptance theories.

The participants of the study were 177 nurses. The instruments used in this study included the user acceptance of information technology scale, and organizational learning capability scale. Internal consistency coefficients of .77 and .72 for scales were obtained, respectively. Confirmatory factor analysis demonstrated construct validity of scales, and path analysis was used to test the hypotheses.
Results: Results indicated that influences of performance expectancy (β=.271, p<.01), effort expectancy (β=.191, p<.05), and social influence (β=.195, p<.01) on behavioral intention were positive and significant. The organizational learning capability had positive and significant influence on performance expectancy (β=.378, p<.01), effort expectancy (β=.389, p<.01), and social influence (β=.267, p<.01); However, the direct effect of organizational learning capability on behavioral intention (β=.085, p>.05) was not significant.
