Background and Purpose: There is no reliable and valid version of the Practice Environment Scale of the Nursing Work Index-Revised (PES-NWI-R) in Arabic. The purpose of this study was to describe the systematic instrument translation and validation of the PES-NWI-R. Methods: Using the Content Validity Indexing-based approach, 32 expert nurses from four countries in the Eastern Mediterranean Region (Jordan, Oman, Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates) participated in the validation of this translation. Results: The content validity index score of the overall scale was excellent (0.87 for the relevancy, and 0.95 for the quality of Arabic translation). Conclusion: Our study supported the content validity of the Arabic version of the instrument which provided the first valid Arabic translation of the instrument.
