Abstract

Abstract
Purpose
This study aimed to test the psychometric properties of the Gender Roles Attitudes Scale‐Turkish Version (GRAS‐TR) and evaluate nursing students' gender role attitudes.

Design and Methods
This was a psychometric and descriptive study. The sample consisted of 916 nursing students at two state universities in Turkey.

Findings
The content validity index of the scale was 0.89. The confirmatory factor analysis revealed that the fit indices were acceptable/good. Test–retest results and Cronbach alpha coefficient showed that the scale has high reliability. Nursing students scored above midlevel from GRAS‐TR.

Practice Implications
GRAS‐TR is a valid and reliable instrument. Nursing students who were women, had postgraduate education, few siblings, and were not born/raised in the eastern region had a more egalitarian attitude.
