Background: The coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic has overwhelmed the nursing workforce through tremendous pressure worldwide. Therefore, the Ministry of Education in many countries had transferred the education system to virtual learning. Thus, blackboard is currently the main tool for delivering education and enabling the interactions between teachers and students. Aims: The aim of this study is to explore nursing students' challenges in using Blackboard, and to explore the advantages and disadvantages of using blackboard among nursing students. Settings and Design: This study used a descriptive qualitative study design. The study collected eleven nursing students. Subjects and Methods: In-depth individual semi-structured interviews were used. Statistical Analysis: The data were analyzed using thematic analysis. Results: The results identified four themes: high student satisfaction in using backboard; the positive impact of using Blackboard; learning obstacles through using blackboard; and students' desire for in-class education instead of the blackboard platform. Conclusion: Blackboard, through its current characteristics and features, makes education easy and available to all students. However, students do not prefer blackboard in practical nursing subjects.
