[Research Paper or Poster Presentation] Intuition is identified as an affective component of critical thinking and serves an important role in making clinical judgments. Research on intuition has focused primarily on professional expertise, and the development of intuition instrument has implemented including validation of intuition. However, few studies have examined intuition use and validation of intuition instrument among nursing students in various ethnic and racial populations. The purpose of this study was to validate intuition instrument developed by Smith (2006) and to assess the psychometric properties of instrument scale among Korean nursing students. After assessment of face validity by an expert Korean panel including back translation process, 144 Korean nursing students were recruited through convenience sampling. In a factor analysis, the original 27-item intuition instrument with 7 factors converged to 22-item with 3 factors: connections factor, bad feeling & sensations factor, and good feelings factor. A standardized alpha of .86 was obtained for 22 items. And the alpha for factors 1, 2, 3 were calculated .86, .81, .85, respectively. The intuition instrument was shown to be a useful measure of intuition of Korean nursing students. For future research, it needs to assess psychometric evaluation among Korean nurses and to compare among trans-cultural populations.
