NEGRILLO DURAN, Carmen; SUAREZ CARRASCO, Ana  y  HERRERA SANCHEZ, Isabel María. Construction and validation of a self-discrepancies scale of competence in nursing care. Index Enferm [online]. 2015, vol.24, n.3, pp.176-180. ISSN 1699-5988.

Objectives: To design and to validate a scale for nursing students, that allows to identify the conceptions on nursing care competences and determine any possible discrepancies that may arise between their current experiences in the acquisition of competence and the standards or guidelines established by the own profession. Methods: Cross-sectional study with a sample of 349 first- and fourth-year students of Nursing. A first version of the scale according statistical criteria and expert judges was refined. The final 24-item scale provides nursing care competences. Results: It provides a scale with adequate psychometric properties. It includes two subscales with two domains independent from each other (actual self, ought self). Discussion: There is a line of work, which introduces a new way of analysis to determine the well-being and the academic and professional success of nursing students, based on their actual and normative conception of nursing care competences.
