The purpose of this descriptive correlational study was to

determine the effect of the nurse's spiritual self awareness on

the nurse's attitude toward spiritual intervention in human care.

Watson's (1988) Theory of Human Science and Human Care and Ajzen

and Fishbein's (1980) Theory of Reasoned Action provided the

theoretical underpinnings of the study. A cluster random sample

of 280 active Wisconsin registered nurses responded to a survey

questionnaire composed of the Spiritual Well-Being Scale, the

Religious Life Scale, the Spiritual Perspective Scale, and the

Attitudes Toward Spiritual Intervention Questionnaire.

Demographic data included age, sex, educational background, and

years of nursing experience. Analyses of the data revealed

significant differences between attitudes toward spiritual

intervention and the individual variables educational background,

years of experience, and age. Correlational coefficients with

attitudes toward spiritual intervention indicated moderate

inverse relationships with religious well-being, spiritual

maturity, and spiritual perspective. The predictor variables of

religious well-being and existentialistic well-being were

extrapolated as potentially important precursors of attitudes

toward spiritual intervention. Findings contributed to the

understanding of the components that influence the nurse's belief

formation and act as precursors on attitude formation toward

spiritual intervention.
