© 2022 Wiley Periodicals LLC.Aim: The fact that a great majority of undergraduate nursing students do not prefer to work in the field of community health after graduation is an important issue in terms of community care. This study evaluated the validity and reliability of Turkish adaptation of the Scale on Community Care Perception (SCOPE) for nursing students. Design: This study is a methodological study. Methods: The study was conducted in two phases. The sample of the study was composed of 601 undergraduate nursing students studying in a university located in the Central Anatolia region of Turkey. The data were collected using the Descriptive Information Form and “Scale on Community Care Perception for Nursing Students.”. Results and Discussion: The content validity index of the Turkish version of the scale was 0.91. The scale consisted of 28 items and 6 subscales and these 6 subscales accounted for 60.297% of the total variance. The Turkish adaptation of the SCOPE is demonstrated validity and reliability and can be used in measuring the community care perception of Turkish nursing students.
