ABSTRACT

Objective:: to cross-culturally adapt and validate the Nursing Student Satisfaction Scale(NSSS) for use with nursing students in the Brazilian context.

Method:: this was a quantitative exploratory and descriptive study using a cross-sectionaldesign conducted with 123 undergraduate nursing students studying at a publicuniversity in the south of Brazil. The cross-cultural adaptation was performedaccording to international guidelines. Validation for use in a Brazilian contextwas performed using factor analysis and Cronbach's alpha.

Results:: based on the expert committee assessment and pre-test, face and content validitywere considered satisfactory. Factor analysis resulted in three constructs:curriculum and teaching; professional social interaction, and learningenvironment. The internal consistency of the instrument was satisfactory: thevalue of Cronbach's alpha coefficient was 0.93 for the instrument as a whole, andbetween 0.88 and 0.89 for the constructs.

Conclusion:: the Brazilian version of the Nursing Student Satisfaction Scale was shown to bereliable and validated for the evaluation of student satisfaction withundergraduate nursing programs, considering the aspects teaching activities,curriculum, professional social interaction, and learning environment.
