WHAT DO NURSING STUDENTS UNDERSTAND BY SPIRITUALITY AND SPIRI-TUAL CARE?

Beth Seymour
Issued Date: 6 Apr 2013

Abstract


The assumption that nursing students have an understanding about the nature of spiritual care requires examination especially in an environment which expects nurses and other health care staff to provide spiritual care. Unfortunately there is little by way of spiritual education in nursing courses. This article describes a case study of nursing students’ understandings of spirituality and experiences of spiritual education. The focus is on a particular method of data collection from the larger study, the nominal group technique, and discussion surrounds its use, analysis and findings.
