The purposes of the study were to assess the status of Information Communication Technology (ICT) system management in the Colleges of Nursing under the Praboromarajchanok Institute for Health Workforce Development and to develop an Information Communication Technology (ICT) System Management Model. The sample consisted of 280 participants, including directors, vice directors, heads of units, faculty members, system administrators and staff responsible for ICT recruited by using multi-stage sampling from 10 colleges of nursing. The instruments included a questionnaire that was composed of 4 parts, general information, ICT system management, the Stage of Concern (SoC), and the Levels of Use (LoU) ICT with the alpha coefficient reliabilities of .97, .88, and .95, respectively. The data were analyzed by frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, Pearson Product Moment Correlation and Multiple Regression.
The study showed a high level for overall score of ICT system management, particularly in hardware, administration, software, and peopleware, but the data resource was at a moderate level. The overall score of the SoC ICT was at a high level, and the overall score of the LoU ICT was at a moderate level. The ICT system management had positive relationship with the SoC ICT (r=.40) and the LoU ICT (r=.41) (p<.01). The results of Multiple Regression revealed that data resource management could predict SoC of ICT (20.5%), administration, hardware management, and data management could predict LoU of ICT (22.2%). The Information Communication Technology (ICT) System Management Model was developed and composed of hardware management, software management, data resource management, and peopleware management. Also, experts agreed that the model was appropriate, practical, and relevant within a theoretical research framework.
