ABSTRACT

Purpose: This qualitative study aimed to explore the attributes of spiritual nursing and provide a basis for the necessary education to enhance spiritual nursing performance. Methods: The participants in this study were nine nurses with experience in performing spiritual nursing. Data were collected from October to November 2022 through individual interviews using open and semi-structured questions. The content analysis method was used for data analysis. Results: The results revealed three themes and nine sub-themes, namely, “Care that brings peace of mind,” “Care that restores the meaning and purpose of life,” and “Care that strengthens inner strength through faith.” Conclusion: Nurses' experiences of spiritual nursing derived from this study will help in understanding the attributes of spiritual nursing. Additionally, the results of this study are expected to serve as preliminary data for the development and application of spiritual nursing education programs.
