Spiritual intelligence is a set of abilities to take advantage of religious resources that can predict a personchr('39')s quality of life and adjustment. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between spiritual intelligence and quality of life in nurses of Birjand teaching hospitals in a descriptive-analytical and cross-sectional study. Data were collected by using the Spiritual Intelligence Questionnaires (SISRI-24) and Quality of Life (SF36) and analyzed using the correlation t-test. In this study, 187 subjects were included in the study, of which 42.2% were male and 58.8% were female. The average score of spiritual intelligence of the subjects was 48, which is lower than average. Based on the results of correlation coefficient test, there was a significant relationship between spiritual intelligence and emotional health (r=0.77) and the individualchr('39')s general health score (r=0.20).
Based on the results, the spiritual intelligence score of the subjects was moderate and low. On the other hand, spiritual intelligence predicted some areas of quality of life in nurses, Therefore, the implementation of programs aimed at increasing the spiritual intelligence of individuals can increase the quality of life of nurses.
