Context: Due to the wide prevalence of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Iran, there is a great deal of pressure on nurses who are taking care of patients with COVID-19. Aims: This study aims to investigate the spiritual needs of nurses caring for patients with COVID in Imam Khomeini Hospital in Sari. Settings and Design: This descriptive–correlational research method based on structural equations modeling was conducted at Mazandaran University of Medical sciences. Materials and Methods: The statistical population of the study included all nurses working in the corona ward of Imam Khomeini Hospital in Sari. One hundred out of 140 nurses were randomly selected using Krejcie Morgan formula as the sample size. The Spiritual Needs Questionnaire designed by Büssing et al. was used to assess the spiritual needs of nurses. Statistical Analysis Used: SPSS and PLS 3 software were used at the significance level of ≤0/05 for the analysis of regression equations. Results: The results of the study demonstrated that there is a significant relationship between spiritual needs and its subfactors in nurses caring for COVID-19 patients in Imam Khomeini Hospital in Sari which is based on the path coefficient between nurses “spiritual needs and religious needs (0.752), the need for inner peace (0.699), existentialism needs (0.539), and actively giving needs (0.586).” Furthermore, the PLS 3 of the research was 0.691 which indicated that the structure of the model is well suited to the data. Conclusion: This research led to make a model showing the relationship between spiritual needs and religious needs, the need for inner peace, the existentialism needs, and the actively giving needs in COVID-19 ward.
