The purpose of this study was to examine the reliability and validity of the Virtual Nurse Caring Instrument (VNC) using data collected from a sample of 34 HPN (Home Parenteral Nuturition) patients and their caregivers in the North America. The VNC is a 4-point Likert scale, which measures HPN patients' and/or their caregivers' perception of caring from use of website providing virtual nursing guidance for managing complex home care. The VNC is composed of 36 items and has 4 subscales that are based on the work of Watson (Watson & Lea,1997) and Sandelowski (2002): Accurate Scientific-Based information (ASB), Anticipatory Guidance (AG), Maintains a Sense of Connection with Healthcare Professionals from Distance (MSC), and Assist to Improve Way-of-life and Safety with HPN (WOL&S). Reliability of the entire scale, as well all 4 subscales of the VNC was established by meeting alpha equal to or greater than .70 which is a criterion for a newly developed instrument. Chronbach's alpha coefficient for the entire scale was .95. Alpha for the subscales were .85, .84, .87, and .77 for ASB (8 items), AG (10 items), MSC (9 items), and WOL&S (9 items), respectively. Construct validity of the VNC was evident by a significant correlation (Spearman r=.539, p=.001) between the mean score of the entire VNC and a single item "This website provides A SENSE OF CARING" which was measured on a 4-point Likert scale ranging from 1 (strongly disagree) to 4 (strongly agree). The result supported the VNC was measuring HPN patients' and/or their caregivers' perception of caring from use of virtual nursing website.
