Purpose This study was designed to determine the validity and reliability of the Turkish version of the "Nursing Job Rotation Stress Scale (NJRS)". Design and Methods This methodological study was carried out with 200 nurses in 2018. Findings The content validity index for NJRS is 0.98, the Cronbach's alpha coefficient of the whole scale is calculated as .92. The internal reliability of the subscales was 0.86, 0.83, and 0.81 respectively. The goodness of fit indexes are 0.054 for root mean square error of approximation (RMSEA), 0.95 for goodness-of-fit index (GFI), 0.98 for comparative fit index (CFI), 0.98 for incremental fit index (IFI), 0.94 for relative fit index (RFI), 0.96 for normed fit index (NFI), and 0.97 for Tucker-Lewis index (TLI). Practice Implications The Turkish version of the NJRS was evaluated and it was found to be a valid and reliable measurement tool for Turkish nurses.
