This study investigates the construct validity of Wong and Law's self report emotional intelligence scale. Emotional intelligence (EI) has four distinct dimensions, which includes self-emotional appraisal, uses of emotion, regulation of emotion, and others' emotional appraisal. Confirmatory factor analysis was employed in order to validate the factorial structure of emotional intelligence through a sample of 178 nurses. Results reveal that Wong and Law's 16-item EI scale effectively captured the EI dimensions in this study. Some suggestions for future research will be offered. (C) 2014 The Authors.
