The spiritual nursing care ability differed significantly depending on religion(F=7.570, p < .001), the level of spiritual nursing knowledge(F=19.873, p < .001), education type(F=14.626, p < .001), necessity of hospice(t=2.280, p=.024). The degree of spiritual nursing care performance differed significantly depending on spiritual nursing education time(F=2.932, p=.036).
