Abstract

The methodological study was aimed to assess the psychometric properties of the Turkish version of the Spiritual Care Competence Scale (SCCS-T). The research was conducted on final-year Turkish nursing students (n = 297) in the faculties of nursing and health science in two cities in the western part of Turkey. Exploratory factor analysis revealed that three factors accounted for 75.18% of the explained variance. The Cronbach's alpha coefficient for the SCCS-T was .97. The three-factor model of the SCCS-T was found to be a reliable and valid scale for evaluating spiritual care competencies of Turkish nursing students and nurses.
