Abstract

An exploratory factor analysis was performed on two spiritual well-being instrunnents: Paloutzian & Ellisons spiritual well-being scale (SWBS), and the JAREL spiritual well-being scale (JSWBS). The scales were combined and administered to a combined convenience sample (n=130) comprising of undergraduate nursing students (n=56 & n=55) and an ambulatory oncology group (n=19). The two scales were found to have a high correlation (r=0.8187). The underlying subscale structure of the SWBS was generally supported by the analysis. The JSWBS subscale structure was not supported by the analysis.
