A Personal Inventory Can Assess Nurses' Spirituality

Katherine Gallia, RN, PhD, AOCN®

Research indicates that many nurses lack formal educational preparation for spiritual care and are hard-pressed to know how to begin building their expertise. One starting point is to conduct a personal spiritual inventory. Examining your belief system, your commitment to spiritual care, your strength for spiritual care, and your needs for further growth is a form of self-assessment that can provide direction, understanding, and inspiration. The following questions can be used to guide the personal spiritual inventory.
