The development and application of information technology influence all areas of knowledge, enabling new ways of learning. The Wiki is a tool of information and communication technology provided by the Web 2.0 that can be exploited and used in teaching, learning, care and research in nursing education. Thus, this quantitative study is a descriptive and exploratory objective was to evaluate the nursing students with the criteria of Ergonomics and Usability of the tool Wiki as a technology to access information on nursing care in mechanical ventilation in the Intensive Care Unit. The tool was evaluated as "excellent" in the criteria for Ergonomics and Usability, and is considered a new emerging technology suitable for educational use.
