The purpose of this cross-sectional descriptive correlational study, which was part of a larger study examining a model of stress and coping in women with breast cancer, was to examine the relationships between spiritual coping strategies and Quality of Life (QOL) and life satisfaction. A convenience sample of 100 subjects was recruited from an Internet website. Data were collected using mailed questionnaires with an 87.3% response rate. The subjects were well educated, mean age was 45.98 years, most had household incomes greater than $50,000, were married or living with a partner, and were Caucasian. Mean time since diagnosis was 10.25 months and 89% had stage I or II breast cancer. Exploratory factor analysis of RCOPE revealed twelve spiritual coping factors, six positive and six negative in nature. Six spiritual coping factors (four negative and two positive) were related to QOL in the expected direction and one negative factor was inversely related to life satisfaction. The findings of this study add to the knowledge base about the coping function of the human spiritual dimension. They also underscore the importance of nursing interventions that support women's utilization of positive spiritual coping strategies to improve QOL and life satisfaction.
