Background: Before psychometric instruments can be used for populations other than those for whom they were originally developed, assessment of psychometric properties and validation of cultural appropriateness are essential. The Leadership Practice Inventory (LPI) has been used in a number of nursing studies; yet, there is little evidence of its psychometric properties when used in Taiwan?s nursing education. Objectives: To examine the psychometric properties of the Chinese LPI and develop a culturally appropriate instrument for use in Taiwan?s nursing faculty. Method: The Chinese LPI was used to gather the faculty?s perceptions of leadership behaviors of Taiwan?s nursing deans and directors. The Chinese LPI was translated using translation and back-translation methods. No items were deleted through expert panel review of content validity and subject feedback of face validity. A random sample was recruited from 24 nursing programs, and 362 questionnaires were usable in the final analysis. Psychometric properties of the Chinese LPI were examined using internal consistency reliability, item analysis, and principal axis factor analysis with direct oblimin rotation to evaluate construct validity. The multifactor Leadership Questionnaire Form 5X was used to assess convergent validity. Results: Internal consistency reliability of the Chinese LPI was .95, with .84, .86, and .92 for the three LPI subscales. Eight out of the 30-item Chinese LPI were deleted through item analysis. Construct validity by exploratory factor analysis demonstrated that the 18-item Chinese LPI had loadings above .4 and explained 58.6% of the variance. Convergent validity was supported with a significant correlation (r = .75) to the widely used instrument of Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire Form 5X. Discussion: Findings for the psychometric properties and cultural appropriateness of the Chinese LPI supported its potential as an instrument for measuring leadership behaviors in nursing education in Taiwan. Knowledge of developing a cross-cultural instrument was provided for future research.
