Background: Nurses often do not adhere to health-promoting lifestyles, compromising their health status and quality of care. This study aimed to evaluate health-promoting effects of an eHealth intervention among nurses compared with conventional handbook learning. Methods: This controlled before/after study enrolled 105 nurses, 55 in an experimental group and 60 in a control group, for 3 months of intervention. Both groups completed pre- and postintervention questionnaires of the Health-Promoting Lifestyle Profile and Short-Form Health Survey. Subjects' height, weight, and body mass index were recorded. Discussion: The eHealth education intervention had the effect of significantly increasing nurses' postintervention Health-Promoting Lifestyle Profile total scores. No significant changes were observed in the postintervention scores of the control group subjects. The experimental group also had significant postintervention decreases in BMI, but no similar changes were observed in the control group. Conclusions: Tailored eHealth education is an effective and accessible intervention for enhancing health-promoting behavior among nurses.
