Abstract

PURPOSE
The purpose of this study was to identify the relationship between spiritual well-being and spiritual nursing intervention among nurses. METHOD: Participants (N=171) were recruited from September to November 2007. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, Pearson's correlation and multiple regression.
RESULTS
The score of spiritual well-being of nurses was 2.70 out of a total score of 4 and that of spiritual nursing care was 2.31 out of a total score of 4. There was a significantly positive relationship between spiritual well-being and spiritual nursing care (r=0.281, p<0.001). Spiritual well-being and clinical career explained 12.1% of the variance in spiritual nursing care of nurses.
CONCLUSION
Spiritual well-being has the most important influence on spiritual nursing intervention of nurses. The findings suggest that it is needed to develop effective programs to improve spiritual well-being of nurses. More studies are required to identify other predictors of spiritual nursing intervention.
