Registered nurses constitute the largest group of healthcare professionals with a rather distinctive and crucial role in healthcare services provision. For keeping up with their professional advances and follow the rapid and multifaceted scientific advances of medical practices they constantly require high quality of information. Internet and the online information resources play an important role towards the satisfaction of continual online information needs of nurses. This paper aims to investigate the online information needs of nurses and their internet seeking behaviour. Moreover, their perceptions for the role of information in nursing profession are studied. A survey informed by the Wilson’s macro-model for information seeking behaviour is developed and included 87 registered nurses working at a public hospital. Data analysis involves descriptive statistics and non-parametric tests of correlation and differences between groups.
