Abstract

The measurement models used to operationalize nurses’ occupational image (role conception), a task-based and value-based model, were examined. Specifically, the discriminant validity of the value-based model and the generalizability of the task-based model were assessed. Results tended to support the task-based but not the value-based model. Implications for theory-building and testing were also discussed.
