Literature reveals that spirituality is an important aspect of nursing. Nurses provide holistic care by meeting their clients' social, psychological, emotional, physical and cultural needs. However, spiritual needs are observed to be lacking. Providing spiritual care to patients is part of nurses' role and should be taught to them in their educational programs to prepare them to help their patients to heal. The purpose of this study is to explore the perception of nursing faculty, students and nurses towards teaching spirituality as a formal course in nursing at Aga Khan University (AKU), Pakistan. To conduct the study, purposive sampling will be used to select the members of focus group. Four focus groups will be formed for each of both faculty and students of similar numbers of participants and key informants interviews will be done with nursing leaders and people involved in educational management. The participants will be selected on voluntary basis. Thematic analysis will be done to get at major thems by using N-vivo software. This is a descriptive exploratory study in progress and will take about three to four months to be completed.
