The literature concerning measurement of nurses'attitudes toward AIDS was reviewed.
A short scale to measure nurses'attitudes toward AIDS was developed and evaluated.
The instrument has three subscales on (a) willingness to care for those who are HIV positive, homosexuals, and intravenous drug users as patients, (b) attitudes toward homosexuals and intravenous drug users, and (c) general conservative views on religious, political, and family issues.
The three subscales were supported by results of a factor analysis.
Coefficient alpha ranged from. 69 to. 92.
