Purpose: Urinary Incontinence (UI) prevalence among women ranges from 9-72% with $19.5 billion dollars spent in the US on direct UI expenses in year 2000. Many practicing nurses do not possess adequate knowledge regarding female UI and little is known about nurses' female UI-related practices and beliefs. The purpose of this research was to develop and psychometrically assess an instrument to measure nurses' UI knowledge, beliefs, and practices (NUIKBAP) in the female population. Framework: Feminist and Orem's Self-Care Deficit theories framed this study. Subjects: A purposive sample of content experts (n=7) and a pilot of practical nursing (PN) students (n=11) provided data regarding NUIKBAP's layout, validity, logistics, and utility. After revisions, a convenience sample of graduating PN students (n=205) were recruited for instrument field testing. Method: This multiple methodology investigation aimed to: (a) develop, estimate validity, and revise NUIKBAP; (b) assess NUIKBAP's psychometric properties; and (c) capture qualitative-descriptive input. Results: Experts rated NUIKBAP content valid (item CVI > 0.800 on 71/74 retained items; instrument CVI 0.856; inter-rater reliability 0.730). The pilot revealed high utility and significant divergent validity (p=0.002) between groups. Phase II post-elimination Cronbach's alphas were adequate for knowledge (0.740), beliefs (0.729-0.776), and practices (0.704). A 6-factor Principal Axis factor solution reduced and organized items. Qualitative-descriptive analysis (n=21) led to the emergence of five UI themes. Conclusions: Translation of continence research into practice must be brokered by nurses, yet limited information exists on nurses as mediators of female UI care. NUIKBAP will be useful longitudinally to gauge nursing practice progress as efforts are implemented to raise UI awareness, initiate standardized UI screening protocols, and distribute UI treatment guidelines. This research contributes the body of nursing knowledge and will influence UI-related nursing education, practice, and policy.
