 Abstract
The purpose of this study was to understand death perception, spiritual well-being, and terminal care stress in geriatric hospital nurses and analyze related factors affecting terminal care stress. The participants were 181 nurses working in six geriatric hospitals located in Seoul and Gyonggi Province, Korea. Data were gathered from July 16 to August 1, 2015. The data were analyzed using ANOVA, t-test, Duncan test, and logistic regression. Death perception of geriatric hospital nurses had an average score of 4.30, spiritual well-being 3.40, and terminal care stress 3.84. Terminal care stress in relation to general characteristics showed a meaningful difference in religion and total clinical career. The terminal care stress level was divided into two groups using average score as a standard, and the results revealed that spiritual well-being had a significant impact on terminal care stress of geriatric hospital nurses. These factors need to be considered when developing an educational program to reduce terminal care stress of nurses working in a geriatric hospital.
