AbstractAn adequate measure of Control Over Nursing Practice (CONP) at the organizational level of the nurse's work unit was needed. The purpose of this study was to estimate the reliability and validity of a new unit-level version of an existing CONP scale using a descriptive survey design. A convenience sample of 91 staff Registered Nurses from two urban hospitals voluntarily completed two versions (individual-level and unit-level) of the CONP scale, and an index of work satisfaction.
