Research findings; 1) students were satisfied with using ICT to replace face to face seminar for interactive teaching and learning in Nursing Administration at the highest level (M = 4.57, SD = 0.55 ). 2) The replacement of ICT led to the 3 following impacts on students: (1) learning skills conformed to needs in the 21st century, (2) deep learning, and (3) self-discipline and responsibility.
