Background: Teamwork is an essential building block in the healthcare system, where team members' perceptions significantly affect teamwork dynamics. Thus, a valid and reliable questionnaire is crucial for evaluating team members’ perceptions.

Aim: The purpose of this study is to adapt and psychometrically test the TeamSTEPPS® Teamwork Perceptions Questionnaire for a nurse sample.

Methods: This cross-sectional validation study included a sample of 365 nurses working in both a university and a private hospital from November to December 2019. The study utilized the Guidelines for Reporting Reliability and Agreement Studies (GRRAS) checklist. The questionnaire was initially translated into Turkish using the back-translation method. Item analysis, an expert panel for content validity, confirmatory factor analysis for construct validity, internal consistency, the test-retest method, and item-total correlation coefficients were employed to verify the questionnaire’s psychometric properties.

Results: The participating nurses, aged between 25-40 years (63.8%), primarily worked in intensive care units (29.6%). The questionnaire was deemed adequate in terms of language and content. Confirmatory factor analysis of the five-dimensional questionnaire indicated a good fit. The Cronbach's alpha for the entire questionnaire was 0.93, with sub-dimensions ranging from 0.91 to 0.94. The five-dimensional model demonstrated acceptable goodness-of-fit indices. The two-way mixed intraclass correlation coefficient for the five-dimensional questionnaire indicated excellent test-retest reliability.

Conclusion: The questionnaire proved to be an acceptable instrument for measuring nurses' perceptions of individual teamwork within their groups.
