Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the psychometric properties of the newly-developed Presence of Nursing Scale (PONS). The PONS is the operationalized conceptual definition of nursing presence, incorporating both the "being with " and "doing for" the patient. This study was guided by the paradigm that nursing presence is a fluid multidimensional whole, simultaneously existing in the affective, behavioral, cognitive, and spiritual domains. The sample consisted of 330 adult patients hospitalized on medical-surgical nursing units of one acute care community hospital in the Midwestern United States. The majority of patients were admitted for surgery (15.5%), pain (15.5%), or infection (14.4.%). Forty-three percent of the patients questioned were male and 56% were female. Ethnicity of the patients included 47% African-American and 46% Caucasian. The data were collected using the PONS, a 25-item scale reflecting dimensions of nursing presence. Patients independently rated the items, presented in a 5-point Likert scale format, as to the frequency that the registered nurses' interventions reflected these dimensions. One single-item indicator of overall patient satisfaction with nursing care was also included. Support for the PONS' reliability and validity was achieved. Content validity was supported by unanimous agreement on item inclusion by four content experts. Comparing patients' perceptions of nursing presence to overall satisfaction with nursing care supported construct validity. A point biserial correlation of .801 revealed a high positive correlation between satisfaction with nursing care and quantity of nursing presence perceived. The stability of the PONS was tested using the test-retest method. A Spearman's Rho correlation coefficient of .729 indicated a positive association between scores on the first and second administration of the PONS. A Cronbach's alpha reliability coefficient of .95 supported internal consistency reliability.
