To determine the level of spiritual needs of cancer patients from nurses?and to explore its influencing factors. Our sample included 153 inpatients from Tongji hospital and the oncology center from January 2017 to April 2018. We used the Chinese version of the Nurse Spiritual Therapeutics Scale ?NSTS? to assess the level of spiritual needs of cancer patients from nurses. NSTS total score was?32.10±7.68?. Regression results showed that religion and educational level were influencing factors in the patient. This paper argued that the level of spiritual needs was at middle. However, with various educational level and religion status?the level of spiritual needs was different also.
