Introduction: Spirituality and spiritual intelligence can be effective in all spheres of human life such as the spheres of work and social activities of human beings. The present research was conducted to investigate the effect of spiritual intelligence on the quality of nursing care in Hamadan University of Medical Sciences hospitals.
Methods: This descriptive-correlational study was conducted on 174 nurses working in teaching hospitals in Hamadan city, using stratified random sampling method in 2018. The data gathering tool was a questionnaire of Spiritual Quran Inventory and Quality of Nursing Care Quality Questionnaire (QUALPAC). Data were analyzed using Cronbach’s alpha, Kolmogorov-Smirnov tests and Pearson correlation in SPSS21 software and structural equation modeling in PLS software.
Results: The mean age of the majority of participants was 31-40. The mean and standard deviation of spiritual intelligence dimensions included: transcendental consciousness (25.49±6.066), personal meaning (18.28±4.516), and critical thinking (25.22±6.152) development of consciousness (18.01 ± 4.707) and in dimensions of nursing care quality, psychosocial dimension (83.11±15.7), communication dimension (40.03±7.41), physical dimension (75.67±14.5). Transcendental consciousness, creation of personal meaning, existential thinking and development of consciousness had no significant effect on the quality of nursing care (P >0.05). There was no significant relationship between spiritual intelligence and psychosocial dimension and communication quality of nursing care (P>0.05). But Spiritual intelligence had a direct and significant relationship with the physical dimension of nursing care (P<0.05).
Conclusion: The results of this study showed that the effect of the four components of spiritual intelligence (existential critical thinking, development of the position of consciousness, the creation of personal meaning, transcendental consciousness) on the quality of nursing care and its two dimensions, including psychosocial aspect was not significant. Only a weak relationship was found between the physical dimension of nursing care with spiritual intelligence. Finally, there is a weak correlation between spiritual intelligence and quality of nursing care.
