—The study attempts to examine the psychometric
properties of the job performance constructs by integrating the
two subscales; task performance and contextual performance.
Results from preliminary psychometric conclude that the
nursing performance scale has good internal consistency and
good criterion validity. A measure developed by Greenslade
and Jimmieson was used as a reliable and valid tool in assessing
nurses’ job performance. The results of exploratory factor
analysis confirmed that the measurement scale used in this
study satisfactorily met the standards of validity and reliability

the dimensions that measure Job Performance constructs.
