Introduction: Nurses as the main core of the treatment team have critical roles in improving the health of the community. Several factors such as spiritual intelligence and resilience control the behavior of nurses. The main objective of this study is to determine the relationship between spiritual intelligence and resilience with the self-efficacy of clinical performance in nurses working in Shoushtar educational hospitals.
Materials and Methods: The present cross-sectional analytical study was conducted on 92 nurses working in Shoushtar educational hospitals. Nurses were selected by census sampling method. The data collection tools included a demographic information form, spiritual intelligence self-report inventory (SISRI), Conner-Davidson resilience scale (CD-RIS), and the self-efficacy of clinical performance. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics (mean and standard deviation), linear regression, and Spearman correlation coefficient in SPSS software ver. 16.
Results: The results show that there is a significant relationship between spiritual intelligence (p<0.001) and resilience (p<0.001) with self-efficacy of clinical function.
Conclusion: It seems that paying attention to the areas of spirituality and resilience is of particular importance. Therefore, there is a need for spirituality education and resilient skills for nurses to increase their self-efficacy and their performance.
