This paper explores the reason why spiritual care is recommended for nurses by discussing two main pieces of nursing research on spiritual care. This is related to Judaeo- Christian teaching and related issues of gender and the body/mind/spirit split in western culture and the effect of this on bodily care in nursing. If there is a case for teaching spiritual care separate from bodily care the difficult questions are who should teach it and what should be taught which is separate from cultural care as already addressed.
