AIM: The objective of this study was to adapt the pediatric nurse parent partnership scale into Turkish and assess its validity and reliability.

METHODS: A methodological and correlational research methodology was employed. The study was performed with 348 pediatric nurses between January and March 2023. Data collection measures were a “Personal Information Form” and the “Pediatric Nurse Parent Partnership Scale.” Content and structure validity, internal consistency, and item analysis methods were utilized to establish the validity and reliability of the measure.

RESULTS: The adapted measure was found to have 19 items, explaining 71.60% of the total variance, and a four-sub-dimensional structure. According to the explanatory factor analysis findings, factor loads varied from 0.509 to 0.854, and item–total score correlation values of 0.509– 0.750 were obtained. The goodness of fit indices obtained from the confirmatory factor analysis were CMIN/DF=3.845, GFI=0.87, CFI=0.92, NFI=0.89, TLI=0.90, and RMSEA=0.091. The confirmatory factor analysis of the four-factor measure structure showed that these index figures were acceptable. Cronbach’s α was 0.939 for the total scale and varied from 0.845–0.893 for the sub-dimensions.

CONCLUSION: The Pediatric Nurse Parent Partnership Scale was an effective and trustworthy measure that could be used in the Turkish sample to evaluate the partnerships reported by pediatric nurses and parents in the field.
