While the phenomenon of nursing presence has been known to exist since the days of Florence Nightingale, it has only recently received scholarly attention. Story telling and qualitative research have demonstrated its importance. In the contemporary world of health care, the focus is on saving time and eliminating costs. What cannot be defined and quantified is deemed nonessential and unimportant. To preserve the integrity of Nursing, there is clearly a need not only to understand, but to measure the contributions and impact of professional Nursing presence to the care of patients and families. This research-in-progress is the first documented attempt to quantify nursing presence. Based on the scholarly works of Paterson & Zderad (1976), Gardner (1992), and McKivergin (1994, 1998), a scale to measure nursing presence was developed. The aims of the research are to establish the psychometric properties of the scale and to examine patients' perceptions of nursing presence and its relationship to patient satisfaction. Content validity of the scale has already been established; test-retest reliability, internal consistency reliability, and concurrent validity will be established using 330 hospitalized patients. Construct validity will be established by comparing the scale data to a single item indicator of patient satisfaction.
