For promoting spiritual care we have to consider the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the human.

Many patients expect health care personnel consider these factors

There was no statistically significant difference between attitudes of the two groups of students. Nursing students had more favorable attitude about existing a superior force or transcendental existence influencing spiritual health.
