Abstract

This paper is to validate an instrument for measuring novice nurses’ experiences of organizational supports in the first year of their career as registered nurses.An instrument of 47 items was developed based on the services and programs provided for the novice nurses. The questionnaire was used as a pilot study on 30 purposive convenient samples in a variety of hospital settings. The response rate was 90% (n=27). Using Cronbach alpha=0.947 and Alpha coefficient, the findings were as follow: administration supports (Alpha=0.716); educational supports in exams (Alpha=0.854); supports for an English course (Alpha=0.853); colleagues' support (Alpha=0.930); and professionalism (Alpha=0.870). This suggesting an adequate internal consistency across the various domain contexts of the sample. The research question explores the participants' perceptions, the means were found to be as follow; Administration support (M = 3.56±0.87); educational support in preparing for exams and competencies (M =3.37± 0.61); support for an English course (M =3.47± 0.66); interpersonal relations and communication between co-workers, patients and families (M =4.06±0.77); and perception of oneself as a professional in regard to one’s ability to perform and deal confidently with daily nursing tasks (M =4.03±0.55). The novice nurse evaluation tool is able to guide the organization to improve their novice nurse program in their first year of practice leading tosafer clinical environments.
