Abstract

This paper presents a model of spiritual care education. A definition of spirituality is offered, this is followed by a review of empirical studies on spirituality and nurse education which conclude that nurses' knowledge and skills related to spiritual care are impoverished because of a poor role preparation in this dimension of care. The asset model (actioning spirituality and spiritual Care education and training in Nursing) is recommended as a possible option for improving spiritual care education in nursing. It should prove to be a useful framework and catalyst in effecting change in nurses' knowledge and understanding of the spiritual care requirements of patients. Extensive details of this model are provided in this paper.
