Nurses in providing nursing care need to interact with clients. Such interaction can be successfully performed if the treatment can adapt to mental workload which is manifested into physical, psychological and behavioral symptoms. Objectives: developing a mental workload instrument when interacting with clients in providing nursing care. Methods: It employed a descriptive analytic method. The instrument was developed by employing the approach to the interpretation of scale interval and ordinal scale which were fi lled by 596 participants and processed through 11 case processing data. The research was conducted in the provinces of West Java, Central Java, West Sumatra and South Sulawesi. Validity and reliability of the perception variables were tested (p=0.996 before the interaction and p=0.993 after the interaction), observation (p=0.844 before the interaction, p=0.711), orientation (p=0.711), identifi cation (p=0.769), exploration (p=0.773), resolution (p=0.820), after the interaction (p=0.772), client questionnaire (p=0.64). Results: The results of Confi rmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) usingLisrel software indicated p-value=0.150 (p>0.05) and RMSEA=0.075 (RMSEA <0.1). Discussion: Regulatory support is needed as an implication for the use of the instrument. Conclusion: This instrument is valid and reliable to measure mental workload for diagnostic information
