Abstract

It is important to evaluate nursing students' attitudes toward home care to improve home health nursing profession and increase the number of nursing students willing to work in home care in the future. However, there is no valid and reliable scale for measuring attitudes toward this care method in Iran. This study aimed to determine the psychometric properties of the Persian version of the Attitude Scale for Home Care (ASHC) for nursing students. Data were collected from 280 nursing students. A methodological study was conducted to assess face, content and construct validity and reliability. The results showed good content validity. Only item 17 was considered unfavorable and was omitted. After excluding three items in the confirmatory factor analysis, a 25-item model with good fit indices was obtained. Cronbach's alpha showed a high internal consistency. This is a valid and reliable scale for assessing nursing students' attitudes toward home care.
