Objective: The purpose of this study was to compare the learning outcomes of 36 associate degree nursing students in a maternity class in Ohio who received learning strategies through computer technology with the learning outcomes of 36 associate degree nursing students in a maternity class who did not engage technology as a learning strategy. Design: This is a comparative quasi-experimental research design. Population: The sample population (subjects); 2 groups of associate degree nursing students in Ohio (36 students in each group) studying childbearing nursing. Concept or variables studies together: The means of the final grades for each group. Methods: T-test written comments by students at the end of the course. Findings: Group I, which received computer technology strategies, demonstrated a significantly higher mean (significance level of .001) than Group II who did not receive computer technology as a strategy. Focusing on the students participating in the computer testing placed a heavy emphasis on technology in the study and indicates that approximately 60% of the students that participated in computer testing were performing adequately on the writing test before the project began. However, when the same tests were administrated on computer nearly 70% of the students performed adequately. Conclusions: Students in Group I had significantly higher mean grades than students in Group II, and in addition, identified the strategies with computer technology to be an asset in communication, learning, and caring. This research suggests many ways in which technology may help students produce better work. Implications: The implications for nursing education is with proper use and strategies, computer technology in the classroom can be globally effective for learning, communication and caring
