The Development of a Political Awareness Scale and Psychometric Testing on Nurses in Turkey: A Methodological Study

Hilal KUŞCU KARATEPE [1] , Aytolan YILDIRIM [2]


This study was carried out to develop a Political Sensitivity Scale for nurses and to demonstrate its validity and reliability. This study was prepared in methodological design. Data were collected between June 2017 and January 2018. The number of nurses participating in the research is 300. The data were evaluated in SPSS 21 and AMOS 22 programs. The scale is statistically valid and reliable. Cronbach Alpha 0.95 of the scale, which was applied statistically after content and content validity, construct validity and reliability analysis, were applied. It has four sub-dimensions (Information, Cognition, Participation and Interest) and includes 44 items. The policy guides many important issues such as education, management, expertise, implementation and professionalization of nurses. International literature on nursing and policy issues are qualitative, there is no quantitative study. So it is the first measurement tool. The scale is thought to be effective in measuring the political sensitivity of nurses and international nursing literature.
