BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The Nurses' Perceptions of Electronic Documentation (NPED) scale assesses nurses' perceptions, attitudes, and use of electronic documentation in acute care settings. However, confirmatory factor analysis of the scale had not been conducted. This article describes a confirmatory factor analysis of the NPED scale.
METHODS: An 11-item survey was implemented in a cross-sectional sample of 202 registered nurses in a large tertiary hospital in Australia. Confirmatory factor analysis was used to assess validity and reliability as determined by Cronbach's α coefficients.
RESULTS: Confirmatory factor analysis generated an excellent model-data fit for a two-factor model. All item-factor loadings were statistically significant and substantial.
CONCLUSIONS: The NPED scale is a robust instrument to measure nurses' perceptions of the utility of and concerns about the electronic medical record in practice.
