Aim: To validate the Sustainability Attitudes in Nursing Survey-2 for nurses. Background: Climate change and environmental sustainability is an increasing global issue. Nurses' behaviors could produce harmful emission through their activities, while nurses also care for people with climate changerelated health problems. Therefore, nurses have a responsibility of achieving environmental sustainability.

Design: Cross-sectional design using secondary data. Methods: Data from 349 nurses working at tertiary hospitals in Korea were collected in August 2022. The content validity index and the construct, convergent, discriminant and criterion validities were evaluated. Cronbach's alpha and intraclass correlation coefficient were also evaluated to determine reliability. Results: The survey comprised five items with single factor, similar to its original version. Its validity and reliability were acceptable. Cronbach's alpha was .86. The intraclass correlation coefficient was .81 for the entire scale. Conclusion: This study found the Sustainability Attitudes in Nursing Survey-2 to be a valid and reliable tool for measuring nurses' attitudes toward environmental sustainability. Understanding nurses' attitudes and the educational needs related to environmental sustainability could help develop a more environmentally sustainable workplace in nursing.
