Aim: This study was conducted to assess the validity and reliability of the Turkish version of the "Home Care Nursing Quality Scale".

Material and Methods: The population of the study, which is of methodological type, consists of the relatives of the patients who receive health care services from a state hospital's home care services unit. The study sample consisted of 225 participants who received home care services between March and June 2021 and agreed to participate in the research. "Participants Information Form", "Patient Experience Questionnaire" and "Home Care Nursing Quality Scale" were used in data collection.

Results: The Cronbach Alpha reliability coefficient of the 22-item scale is 0.98. The chi-square value degrees of freedom regarding the model's goodness of fit is 4.710 (p<0.05). The KMO value was 0.957, and the Bartlett Sphericity test result was statistically significant at the 0.000 level (p<0.05). It was determined that the three factors in the scale explained 92.28% of the total variance. Test and re-test correlation was found as r:0.88, p≤0.001.

Conclusion: The "Home Care Nursing Quality Scale" has been determined to be a reliable and valid scale based on the results of the analyses. In order to increase the quality of home care services, it is recommended to use this measurement tool at regular intervals to evaluate and compare the quality of nursing services.
