Purpose: To examine the relationship between emotional intelligence and spiritual well-being among nursing students. Conclusion and Implications: The significant relationship between emotional intelligence (Branch 4-managing emotions) and spiritual well-being as well as existential well-being in this study supports the statements in the literature that spirituality is related to both emotions and the rational application of those emotions. Emotional intelligence may aid in spiritual development, well-being, and education as emotions are a basis of awareness and engagement within humanity. Research is needed to examine if strategies to enhance emotional intelligence can facilitate the process of increasing spiritual well-being with a test-retest design. Emotional intelligence and spiritual well-being ought to be examined in relationship to other outcomes measures such as student performance, workplace performance, resilience, empowerment, and health benefits.
