Two nursing self-efficacy scales (academic and clinical) were developed and refined for use in identifying problems in progress in undergraduate nurses.
Emergent factors within each scale contained items representing important aspects of nursing education.
Both measures showed good internal consistency, test-retest reliability, and construct validity.
Sensitivity to content and focus of tuition at time of completion was shown with some changes in factor structure over samples of first year nursing students.
Academic self-efficacy (but not clinical self-efficacy) was predictive of course withdrawal.
Applications to nursing education, progress in pursuing a nursing career and attrition are discussed.
