Objective: The popularity of the ​“bring your own device (BYOD)” ​concept has grown in recent years, and its application has extended to the healthcare field. This study was aimed at examining nurses’ acceptance of a BYOD-supported system after a 9-month implementation period. Methods: We used the technology acceptance model to develop and validate a structured questionnaire as a research tool. All nurses (n ​= ​18) responsible for the BYOD-supported wards during the study period were included in our study. A 5-point Likert scale was used to assess the degree of disagreement and agreement. Statistical analysis was performed in SPSS version 24.0. Results: The questionnaire was determined to be reliable and well constructed, on the basis of the item-level content validity index and Cronbach α values above 0.95 and 0.87, respectively. The mean constant values for all items were above 3.95, thus suggesting that nurses had a positive attitude toward the BYOD-supported system, driven by the characteristics of the tasks involved. Conclusions: We successfully developed a BYOD-supported system. Our study results suggested that nursing staff satisfaction with BYOD-supported systems could be effectively increased by providing practical functionalities and reducing clinical burden. Hospitals could benefit from the insights generated by this study when implementing similar systems.
