Abstract

Purpose
The purpose of this study was to develop and psychometrically test the nursing start-up attitude scale for student nurses.
Methods
The initial items were based on the second analysis of systematic review of previous studies and in-depth interview data with 9 nurse entrepreneurs. In total, 25 items were derived based on the pilot survey. Psychometric testing was conducted with 324 student nurses. Data were analyzed using validity and reliability test methods.
Results
Six factors, including 12 items explaining 74.4% of the total variance, were verified. The factors were opportunity of self actualization, network building, enhacing start-up competencies, outcomes of start-up, preparation for start-ups, and risk taking. Cronbach's ⍺ was .75.
Conclusion
As validity and reliability have been verified through various methods, the developed scale in this study can contribute to assessing student nurses’ attitudes to nursing start-ups.
