Method: The study planned methodologically was conducted with 97 nurses and 228 nursing students. The semantic equivalence of the scales were obtained using forward-back translation techniques. The data was collected with a questionnaire and the Turkish version of the NPVS-R. Expert opinions for content validity was assessed by Content Validity Index.Construct validity of the scale was analyzed with principal component factor analysis with varimaks rotation. Reliability of the scale was determined with the test-retest reliability and, Cronbach’s alpha coefficients and item analysis for internal consistency.

Results: The Turkish version of the scale had good content validity (CVI=0.95). The scale total cronbach alpha coefficient was found 0.96, and test-retest reliability coefficient 0.90, and item-total correlation coefficient was found between 0.47 to 0.79. The factor analysis results demonstrated in a three-factor solution explaining 66.42% of the total variance that was different from the original scale.Construct validity was supported with an overall factor loading range of 0.49-0.82. The factors labeled as Caring, Professionalism and Trust.

Conclusion: The findings of analyzes carried out for the adaptation of the Turkish community of the Nurses Professional Values Scale, the Turkish version of the scale showed that reliable and valid as unidimensional a tool in examining of the nursing values.
