Purpose: This study is aimed to analyze the validity and reliability of the Individual Workload Perception Scale in Turkish (IWPSTR). Methods: Exploratory factor analysis (EFA), confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), reliability analysis, test-retest, and descriptive statistics were used to analyze data. The sample group of the study consisted of 569 medical and surgical clinic nurses working in hospitals. Results: The content validity index was .983. The factor loadings of the IWPSTR were between .359 and .875, the variance accounted for in this study was 62.86%. Cronbach's alpha value was found to be .923 for the IWPSTR, and between .721 and .937 for its subscales. Test-retest reliability correlation was found .826. Conclusions: It was concluded that the Turkish version of IWPSTR, which includes 29 items and 5 subscales, could also be applied to nurses in Turkey.
