Of the instruments reviewed, Hisar’s instrument for nursing students, the Nursing Practitioner’s Roles and Competencies Scale, and Perceived Faculty Competency Inventory were best rated and had outstanding performance in both measurement properties and corresponding study methodological quality. However, there is still the need for high-quality instruments assessing medical professionalism in other subfields, such as for physicians.
