Background and Purpose: The purpose of this article is to describe an evaluation of psychometric properties of the Indonesian version of the Clinical Learning Environment, Supervision, and Nurse Teacher (CLES + T) scale, a scale that measures nursing students' perceptions of their clinical learning environment. Methods: The CLES + T was completed by 292 nursing students. Inter-item correlations, exploratory factor analysis, Cronbach's alpha, and evidence of validity were used to examine reliability and validity. Results: Four factors were extracted that explained 58% of the variance. Cronbach alphas ranged from.86–.95. Wording to describe different titles of supervisors was unclear to some of the participants. Conclusion: The Indonesian version of the CLES + T is a reliable version. More research is needed to clarify some of the wording.
