Spiritual interventions: how, when, and why nurses use them.

Author information

  • 1Department of Sociology, University of Arizona, Tucson, Ariz 85721, USA.


Researchers have performed limited studies regarding what nurses believe spirituality can do for their patients, the spiritual services they have offered, and under what circumstances. Because much of the extant research has only examined nurses involved in terminal care at different hospitals, it remains unclear upon which shared ideas and practices might nursing staff create a culture of spiritual care within a hospital. To address this situation, this study reports findings from a survey of bedside nurses at a university hospital.
