Topic investigated:  The purpose of this research was to develop a revised Nurses Professional Values Scale (NPVS-R), and test its reliability and validity. This instrument is derived from the Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretive Statements. Method:  The NPVS-R was tested on 632 subjects, including baccalaureate and masters? students and practicing nurses. The students were enrolled in one of 19 programs selected at random from all NLN and CCNE accredited programs in the United States. Practicing nurses were randomly selected from a State Board of Nursing list of registered nurses. A 37-item instrument with a Likert-scale format was tested. The responses of participants to this instrument were subjected to principal components analysis (PCA) with varimax rotation and Kaiser normalization, and internal consistency reliability using Cronbach?s alpha coefficient. Results: Seven factors were identified, accounting for 56.5% of the explained variance resulting in a 26-item instrument. Cronbach?s alpha coefficients for the factors ranged from .73 to .87. The two major factors were Caring and Activism. Conclusion:  Initial testing of this instrument showed a high level of reliability and validity for the NPVS-R. The NPVS-R is a useful instrument for measuring professional nursing values and enhancing professional socialization.
