The teaching of Intramuscular Injection (IMI) is an essential topic for nursing students and consider one of the daily routines job for any nurse. However, the traditional teaching of IMI has shown some limitations to help the students acquire injection skills. Since the advancement of technology available instruments and applications available in the virtual stores, it seems employing an advanced computer technology would be more suitable in the present era, particularly with a large number of students. Content experts among nursing lecturers were invited to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the traditional teaching method and the need to create an online program to teach IMI in a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). A combination of structured and open-ended questions based on related literature was used in the focus group discussion to explore different opinions from the content experts. All the participants recognized the limitations of the traditional teaching of IMI and agreed to the need to create an online computer software as an alternative teaching method to teach the nursing students on IMI. Thus, since the traditional teaching method of IMI administration has the limitations, teaching and practicing IMI virtually and interactively would be more appropriate for the nursing program in producing nursing students who are competent in IMI.
