Abstract

Aims: The purpose of this study was to develop an evaluation tool for establishing the core competencies of nursing practice programs. The construct validity of the questionnaire design was subsequently analyzed.

Methods: A total of 660 graduating nursing students were recruited. This study included the following four stages: formulation of the questionnaire content, establishing expert validity, pilot test for exploratory factor analysis, and conducting confirmatory factor analysis for confirming factor structure.

Results: After conducting exploratory factor analysis, the following two domains were identified: “advancement of practice competence” and “practice competence evaluation”. Additionally, the analysis results for both structures showed a factor loading of 57%.

Conclusion: The results of this study can be used to evaluate the performance of core competencies in nursing practice programs for prospective graduates.
