Abstract: Chronic illness presents challenges and opportunities to the person affected. Persons with chronic illness have identified spirituality as a resource that promotes quality of life. Few authors and researchers have considered spirituality as a factor in quality of life.

The philosophical underpinnings of nursing are caring and holism. Because of these underpinnings, nursing is well positioned to implement spiritualinterventions in practice, propel the development of theory, andbuitda body of evidence to promote quality of life for persons with chronic illnesses
