[Evidence-based Practice Session Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of this study was to explore the self-efficacy of chemistry learning for nursing college students and to develop a validated scale -"The Self-Concept Scale of Chemistry Learning, SCS-CL". Methods: The process of this development started with formulating a list of the factors affecting the learner's self-concept of chemistry learning on the basis of a literature review of related references and then had the validity of the list examined by some scholars and the instructor. The scale generated 20 items. The convenience sampling included 300 students of nursing college in northern Taiwan who took the chemistry course. Results: 289 acceptable questionnaires were collected and later scrutinized for its reliability and validity. After the data was analyzed, 16 items were grouped into three factors: the evaluation of course learning, self-awareness and self-evaluation. The cumulative explained variation of the three factors was 55.201%, and Cronbach's alpha was 0.863. Conclusion: The result showed SCS-CL was a proper instrument with appropriate reliability and validity. The study recommended that the SCS-CL be further tested in order to be an efficient instrument for the instructor to identify the students with low self-concept in the course taking, to help them with early intervention and to reduce the extent to which low self-concept can affect efficient chemistry learning.
