Abstract: This study proposes a conceptual model for investigating the factors affecting nurses’ behavioral intention to use a blended e-learning system (BELS). We integrated perceived risk and the technology acceptance model to hypothesize a theoretical model for explaining and predicting learners’ behavioral intention to use a BELS. Self-report questionnaires were distributed to local community hospitals, regional hospitals, and medical centers in Central Taiwan. Of the 700 distributed questionnaires, we received 682 completed questionnaires, yielding a response rate of 97.4{6e6090cdd558c53a8bc18225ef4499fead9160abd3419ad4f137e902b483c465}. Structural equation modeling revealed that perceived risk, perceived ease of use, and attitude influenced BELS behavioral intention. Perceived ease of use, and perceived usefulness substantially influenced use attitude. In addition, the path coefficient of perceived risk on attitude was nonsignificant. This paper concludes with a discussion of the limitations of the study, and its implications in research and practice.
