This study aimed to investigate the viewpoints of nurses working in Ayatollah Rouhani Hospital in Babol, using information technology, on the performance of more services to patients referred to this center. Methodology: The research is objective in terms of its purpose and it is descriptive-analytical of survey type and specifically based on the "Lisrel Model", which was conducted on 350 nurses from Ayatollah Rouhani Hospital in 2017. The data collection tool was a valid and reliable questionnaire distributed among the statistical population. Data were analyzed by descriptive and inferential statistical tests. Findings: T-test (two independent samples) and ANOVA showed that there was no significant difference in any of the different levels of demographic variables (p>0.05). In contrast, the results of a single-sample T-test showed that the mean of the four dimensions was greater than 3 (p<0.05). Conclusion: The results of this study showed that although the vast majority of nurses agree with information technology, some believe that information technology would not be accompanied by training with nurses would increase the length of documentation and workload of nurses and patient dissatisfaction. Key words: Information Technology, Efficiency, Nursing Services.
