Kokdemir (2003) carried out an adaptation study to transform this inventory into a Turkish version because of cultural concerns. After all items were translated into Turkish by eight experts-six psychologists, a simultaneous translator and Kokdemir himself-it was given out to 913 students in the Faculty of Economic and Administrative Sciences.

First, item-total score correlations were estimated and 19 items whose correlation was under 0.20 were eliminated from the scale. Factor analysis was performed on the reduced scale. Kokdemir’s study revealed that five items had factor loadings lower than 0.32 and that items under the constructs of open-mindedness and maturity were loaded on one construct. Finally, 51 items with six constructs were kept in the scale. Reliability of the whole scale was found to be 0.88. Reliability coefficients of each subscale ranged from 0.61 to 0.78 (Kokdemir, 2003).

Statistical analysis

The SPSS Statistics Packet Program was used in the data analysis for the descriptive statistics such as one-way ANOVA, Pearson correlation and simple linear regression analysis. The significance level was set at p < 0.05 for all statistical tests.

Ethical consideration

Ethical approval was obtained from a university in Turkey, where the study took place. The Ethics Approval Number is 11002.


Participants and Descriptive statistics

Socio-demographic characteristics of the nursing students were determined. From 167 students participating in the study, 56.9% were males and 50.9% out of those were in their fourth year of study. When the Nurse-Patient Interaction Scale average was analysed in accordance with factors such as gender and year of study, no significant difference was found.

The Total Scores of the California Critical Thinking Disposition Inventory and the Caring Nurse-Patient Interaction Scale

The critical thinking disposition scale average of the group was 254.39 ± 26.69 and the Caring Nurse-Patient Interaction Scale average was 283.36 ± 41.27.

However, a significant decrease was found in the critical thinking scale average when the year of study decreased. The difference was found to be caused by freshmen and seniors with the help of a Post Hoc Tukey HSD test (Table 2).

The Simple Linear Regression Result in Terms of Predictive Factors of the Caring Nurse-Patient Interaction

When analysed in accordance with a Pearson correlation, a positive link was found between critical thinking disposition scale results and the Caring Nurse-Patient Interaction Scale results (R = 0.470, p < 0.01). The simple linear regression analysis result was analysed and it was observed that 22% of the caring nurse-patient interactions were predicted by critical thinking disposition (R2 = 0.221, p < 0.01) (Table 3).
