Background & Objective

Nursing is a key profession in the healthcare environment, which plays a pivotal role in health and patient satisfaction. The improvement of the complex structures of spiritual values, beliefs, and attitudes in nurses is of utmost importance in maintaining the quality of the interactions of the services provided by these professionals. The present study aimed to investigate the correlation between commitment and religious orientation on the quality of nursing care.

Materials and Methods

This descriptive-correlational study was conducted on all the female nurses (n=220) employed in Masoumeh Hospital in Qom, Iran. In total, 136 nurses were selected using the Morgan table and via simple random sampling. Data were collected using the Worthington religious commitment inventory (RCI-10), Allport-Ross religious orientation scale (ROS), and Qualipak nursing quality questionnaire (QUALPAC). Data analysis was performed in SPSS version 24 using multiple regression and correlational methods.

Results

The results of multiple correlation-coefficient regarding the effects of various dimensions of religious orientation on the quality of nursing care were significant (r=0.65; P<0.001), explaining 0.62% of the variance of nursing care quality. Moreover, the multiple correlation-coefficient regarding the effects of various dimensions of religious commitment on the quality of nursing care were significant (r=0.93; P<0.001), explaining 0.87% of the variance of nursing care quality. Intrapersonal religious commitment, interpersonal commitment, and internal religious orientation had positive, significant correlations with the quality of nursing care (P<0.001). However, external religious orientation had no significant association with the quality of nursing care (P=0.083).

Conclusion

According to the results, the internalized religious beliefs in nurses could enhance their commitment and quality of work through increasing their spiritual vigor.
