    The research examined the relationship between web-based learning and self-learning readiness of nursing students. The research was a single-group experiment, in which 162 second-year nursing students were given a pre-test and a post-test. All the students use the Internet. Before and after the web-based course, a statistically significant difference was observed concerning the average points totaled for self-learning readiness. Results show that web-based learning positively affected the self-learning readiness of nursing students. Therefore, nursing students would benefit from web-based education as it improves their readiness for self-learning.

    The purpose of this study was to investigate intercultural sensitivity among nursing students in Turkey. This study is a cross-sectional study. It was conducted with nursing students at a university in Ankara. The sample comprised 152 nursing students at the university. This study was carried out between May 2013 and June 2013. Data were collected using an Interview Questionnaire and Intercultural Sensitivity Scale. The data were analysed using frequency, independent t-test and one-way ANOVA. The study found out that the nursing students had higher scores of cultural sensitivity (88.92 ± 12.20). It was found that senior year students, the students who speak a foreign language and the students who had chosen the school willingly had higher scores of cultural sensibility (p < 0.05). The study found that the nursing students had higher scores of cultural sensivility. To increase intercultural sensitivity of nursing students it is recommended that the maintenance strategies and the concept of intercultural sensitivity should be integrated in the curriculum of nursing education and postgraduate training programs.
