The purpose of this research is to help Kowalenko et al. To adapt the “safety and confidence scale of healthcare professionals” developed by (2013) to Turkish and to analyze the validity and reliability of the scale. The study was conducted between September 2018 and November 2018 in a state hospital in Eski?ehir. The study was completed with a total of 222 people (74 male and 148 female) from 687 health professionals who agreed to participate in the study. “Safety and confidence scale of health professionals against violence” was used in the collection of data, with an “individual fact sheet” developed by researchers combing the literature. The Turkish adaptation of the scale was tested by validating factor analysis (DFA). The reliability of the scale was determined by the cronbach Alpha coefficient method. The difference between lower 27% and upper 27% of the scale was analyzed by t-test. Compliance statistics calculated with DFA were found to be acceptable to the previously determined Factor Structure of the scale. It was determined that factor loads were high, standard error values were low, T values were significant (p<0.001) and R2 values were high (R2=0.507- 0.946) according to standardized coefficients. These results confirm the structure validity of the pre-determined Factor Structure. The fact that the substances that make up the original scale have the desired properties, their reliability and validity are high shows that this scale can be used to determine how adequate health professionals in Turkey consider themselves to be against violence and how safe they feel.
