Introduction: Stress is a public health problem in today’s world. Spiritual health is one of the health dimensions that can affect the other ones. This study is about the connection between spiritual health and stress and cortisol level among nursing students.
Materials and Methods: This study was a descriptive analytic search that was done in Azad University, Rasht on 2013. Total of 100 students were participated in this study. Our tools for collecting data were included: demographic information such as, age, sex, occupation and marital status situation. Also, questionnaire about depression, anxiety and stress measurement (Dass_21) were utilized. Additionally, standard questionnaire about spiritual health (SWB) were used. The cortisol plasma was measured with Eliza method.
Results: According to this study, increasing the spiritual health will decrease depression, anxiety and stress among students. We also can conclude that by increasing the depression and anxiety, the cortisol level will increase. There is no connection between cortisol level and stress and spiritual health among these students, but there is a connection between believing in God (as a solution of problems and enjoying the life) and cortisol level.
