Background: Self-regulated learning (SRL) is important in nursing education as it helps students take ownership of their learning and become more independent learners. This can be particularly important in a field like nursing, where the ability to continue learning and adapting to new situations is crucial.

Aim: The aim of this study was to assess the psychometric properties of the Turkish version of the SRL Scale in Clinical Nursing Practice (SRLS-CNP).

Methods: The study sample for this cross-sectional validation study consisted of senior nursing students (n = 296). First, the translation and back-translation methods were used to ensure the language validity of the scale. To provide content validity, expert opinions were taken, and a pilot study was conducted. Confirmatory factor analysis and Rasch analysis were performed to demonstrate construct validity. Concurrent validity was analyzed using the Self-Directed Learning Readiness Scale. The test–retest method and Cronbach’s alpha coefficient for the total and subscale scores were used to analyze the reliability of the scale.

Results: Similar to the original scale structure, a structure consisting of two subdimensions, titled motivation and learning strategies, and five factors related to these subdimensions were demonstrated in the first- and second-level confirmatory factor analyses and Rasch analyses. The scale was found to have concurrent validity (r = 0.613) and test–retest reliability (r = 0.878). The Cronbach’s alpha value of the total scale was 0.898.

Conclusion: The SRLS-CNP, which consists of 16 five-point Likert-type items in two subdimensions, is a valid and reliable measurement tool for Turkish society.
