The Turkish scale, which was formed in consequence of language and scope validities, was practiced on doctors and nurses serving in fi ve state hospitals affi liated with Niğde Province State Hospitals Union General Secretary. Quantitative data obtained in consequence of this practice was evaluated fi rstly on behalf of testing construct validity of scale, by using structural equation modeling and legitimacy tests which were carried out using those data.

Results: The results showed that Clinical Leadership’s Turkish validity and reliability study had very well fi t indices (χ2/sd=4,05; RMSA=0,077; SRMR=0,065; CFI=0,96; GFI=0,78; AGFI=0,75; NFI=0,94; NNFI=0,96; IFI=0,96; αKLÖ = 0,95;ωKLÖ = 0,96;) and constituted 5 dimensions and 40 questions.
