Purpose. The purpose of this study was to translate the English language version of The Disaster Preparedness Evaluation Tool into Arabic and to determine the psychometric properties of the Arabic version, including reliability, validity and factorial structure. Background. World-wide numbers of natural and man-made disasters have increased significantly, in recent years. Since disaster strikes without warning, all health care providers, especially nurses, must prepare appropriate skills and resources for disaster procedures and management during the three phases of disaster; pre-disaster, during disaster and post-disaster. Methods. The Disaster Preparedness Evaluation Tool was translated into Arabic using Beaton's guideline for translation. Face validity and content validity of the Arabic version of the tool were tested by experts in the field. Data was collected through self administered questionnaires distributed to 600 Jordanian Registered Nurses who work in Ministry of Health hospitals and two University hospitals. Results. Statistical analyses for the collected data were performed via SPSS, version 15. Principal component analysis resulted in three factors that explained 64% of the variance in knowledge, skills, and post-disaster management. Cronbach's alphas for these subscales ranged from .864 to .94, which supported their internal consistency. Implications. These results support the reliability and validity of The Disaster Preparedness Evaluation Tool as a measure of knowledge, skills, and post-disaster management. It can be used with confidence with an Arab nursing population to measure their preparedness for disasters.
