The study identifies the perception that students have of the professors and the uses that they give to technology in their courses. Methodology: Cross-sectional study, a digital questionnaire was administered to students admitted to the nursing program. Three dimensions were defined: access to services, perception of teachers to new media and information skills of students. These dimensions were set according to the literature review and indicators of the accrediting agency. Results: The findings show that students have access to mobile devices, which represent their main method of connecting to the Internet and social networks; as well as the beneficial use of these devices in the classroom. Discussion: The results establish a profile of the relationship of students with ICT and contributes to the decision-making process that allows continuing efforts to effectively integrate ICT curriculum level in the classroom.
