Abstract

Background &Aims: Evaluation of clinical and educational environment is a key determinant in qualitative student- center training programs. In order to evaluate and understand this environment a valid and reliable instrument is required. Reliable and valid measurement, however, can be problematic - especially as instruments developed and tested in one culture are translated for use in another. The aim of this study was to exam the psychometric properties of undergraduate clinical education environment measure (UCEEM) in internship nursing and midwifery students in Islamic Azad University in Iran.

Materials & Methods: In this descriptive-cross sectional study, 215 internship nursing and midwifery students completed the Persian versions of (UCEEM).The construct validity of the (UCEEM) was examined by using exploratory factor analysis and Pearson correlations. Cronbakh’s Alfa coefficient was calculated to determine internal consistency. Data analyses were performed with SPSS 17.

Results: Exploratory factor analysis confirms the original four subscales of the UCEEM questionnaire. Overall internal consistency of the translated measure was good (a=0/93. (

Conclusion: The Persian version of the UCEEM appears to be reliable and potentially valid instrument for use in Iranian Nursing and midwifery Schools. It may be favorable in evaluating the clinical learning environments of nursing and midwifery programs nationwide.
