Background: Bricolage is defined as making innovation by collecting current resources in a creative way. The use of innovative approaches such as bricolage in the healthcare will increase patient satisfaction and provide quality and cost-effective treatment and care. For that, it is important to determine the bricolage activities of healthcare providers. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the validity and reliability of the Turkish version of the Bricolage Scale, which is used to measure nurses’ perceptions of bricolage activities.

Methods: The sample of the study consists of 100 nurses working in an educational and research hospital and agreeing to participate in the research. The data of the study were collected using the “Nurse Information Form”, “Bricolage Scale” and “Nursing Individual Innovativeness Scale”. In order to evaluate the validity of the scale, the language, surface-structure and criterion validity of the scale were tested. To evaluate reliably of the scale internal consistency and test-retest reliability were tested.

Results: The internal consistency factor calculated for the reliability of the scale is .905. The mean total score of the Bricolage Scale was 31.88 ± 3.99 and the retest total score was 32.16 ± 3.43. A statistically significant positive correlation was found between scale total score and retest total score (r = .905, P < .001). A significant and moderate correlation was found between Bricolage Scale and The Individual Innovativeness Scale, scores (r = .256; P = .010).

Conclusion: The results of this study showed that the Turkish version of Bricolage Scale is a valid and reliable measurement tool that can be used to measure the perceptions of nurses about bricolage activities in our country.
