Abstract: Abstract BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Professional practice environments have been correlated with quality of care, patient, and nurse outcomes. There is a lack of translated versions of established instruments such as the Revised Professional Practice Environment questionnaire and this study presents the validation of this questionnaire in Greek. METHODS: Translation, cultural adaptation, and factor analysis of the instrument were carried out. Three hundred ninety-three nurses from 5 hospitals of the Republic of Cyprus completed the instrument. RESULTS: A 7-factor solution with 39 items accounted for 55.03% variance. The overall Cronbach's alpha was .89 and ranged between .69 and .84 for the individual factors. CONCLUSIONS: The testing of the translated version of the RPPE into Greek provides support for the validity and internal consistency of the instrument.
