Spiritual care is an activity that most nurses aspire to, yet most nurses feel inadequate to perform. There is a plethora of nursing literature that explores and describes spiritual care. Furthermore, there are nurse scholars and researchers who have published recommendations on how to provide spiritual care. However, there is no nursing literature that attempts to describe or understand what the spirit actually is. The purpose of this presentation is to present what I have learned from studying the word 'spirit' as it occurs in the Bible. I will present the three themes that emerged from this study, I will explore what the Bible teaches us about the spirit within the context of these three themes, and then I will suggest ways that this information can help nurses provide spiritual care.
