AIM: To translate the Strategic Learning Assessment Map into Chinese and validate it in Chinese nursing organisations.
BACKGROUND: Nursing is the largest occupational organisation in the health sector and its adaptation and innovation are important for the realisation of sustainable development goals. Organisational learning is critical in cultivating the adaptive and innovative abilities of organisations, but there is limited research on its measurement. Although the Strategic Learning Assessment Map is a widely acknowledged organisational measurement instrument, it has not yet been adapted and validated in China.
DESIGN: A cross-sectional study design was used.
METHODS: The Chinese version of the Strategic Learning Assessment Map was generated through forward-backward translation and was tested with a convenience sample of 2745 nurses from 7 administrative regions of mainland China. The internal consistency, content validity, structural validity and theoretical framework were examined.
RESULTS: Results validated the theoretical framework and showed excellent content validity, convergent validity and fitness of the measurement model; only discriminant validity was not satisfactory. Cronbach’s α values for the overall scale and its subscales ranged from 0.97 to 0.99.
CONCLUSIONS: The Chinese version of the Strategic Learning Assessment Map is a reliable organisational learning instrument for Chinese nursing organisations.
