The objectives of this study were to clarify items to be considered in the establishment of a natural disaster preparedness scale for hospital nursing departments, and to verify content validity and face validity for these items. A total of 114 items were extracted from previous studies and literature using six elements from the Department of Homeland Security's Preparedness Cycle to create a draft scale. To verify content validity, assessment was performed with five subjects who had served as college or university faculty members in the field of disaster nursing or nursing management. To verify face validity, assessment was also performed with six individuals who had served as head nurses or supervised disaster response/prevention efforts in the nursing department of a disaster-site medical center or a large-scale hospital. The results of content validation revealed that the scale items, which were classified by six elements, needed to be shifted. In face validation, responses were obtained for almost all items, and the mean time taken to provide answers for them was 25 minutes. Wording was modified based on the results of these two investigations, and no elimination or addition was made for the 114 items. The scale was subsequently established in consideration of this work.
