Abstract

This study is a literature review on the use of tele-education as a tool for the implementation of Continuing Education Programmes in nursing. The purpose was to evaluate the use of the Internet to facilitate the participation of nursing professionals in Continuing Education Programmes, in order to improve and systematise nursing care. We conclude that the Internet constitutes an important tool which can aid in quality assurance in nursing, and in implementing systematisation of nursing care.
