Abstract

Purpose. Develop a Children’s Trust in General Nurses Scale (CTGNS).
Design and Methods. In a cross-sectional investigation, 128 UK children (68 females and 60 males; Mean age = 10 year – 4 months) completed the CTGNS and reported their trust in, and fear of, nurses. Forty-six parents reported those dispositions and the frequency of their children visiting medical centres.
Results. The CTGNS showed acceptable internal consistency and factor structure. It was correlated with reported children’s trust in nurses and visiting medical centres.
Practice Implications. The CTGNS will permit the investigation of children’s trust in nurses and interventions to promote it.
