  Abstract

  Background & Aim: Spiritual intelligence as the base of individual beliefs affects performance and leads to an increase in flexibility against problems. This study aims to determine spiritual intelligence and attitude towards spirituality and spiritual care in nursing and midwifery students of Kerman University of Medical Sciences in 2012.

  Material & Methods: It was a cross sectional, descriptive study. A total of 222 nursing and midwifery students of Kerman University of Medical Sciences were recruited by census. Data was collected by the 42-item Spiritual Intelligence Inventory and The Spirituality and Spiritual Care Rating Scale (SSCRS) and were analyzed by parametric statistical tests (i.e. t-test, ANOVA, and Pearson's Correlation Coefficient) using SPSS-PC (v. 20).

  Results: The mean score of spiritual health (150.07±16.98) and attitude towards spirituality and spiritual care (57.57±10.70) of the nursing and midwifery students was at moderate level. Among demographic variables, there was only a significant relationship between age and the mean score of attitude toward spirituality and spiritual care (P= 0.029).

Conclusion: The results of this study suggest the importance of addressing spirituality among nursing and midwifery students. Accordingly, planning to improve the spirituality level of nursing and midwifery students is recommended.
