Abstract


The article presents the results of the research in spirituality and the moral personal state of a nurse as a condition for the formation of partnership relations in the medicine in dyads, these being: a) a nurse – a patient, b) a nurse – a doctor, and c) a nurse – to another nurse. The received data allowed to ascertain that nurses are mature, spiritually developed personalities. They feel themselves belonging to the Orthodox culture (87.2%) and admit the necessity of preserving the traditional religious values in Russia (86.5%). However, 23.3% of the nurses consider medicine being beyond moral, and 6.3% - even contradicting it. The possibility of interference of religion into medicine is allowed for by a very small number (6.6%) of nurses. Keeping up with the high spiritual and moral culture as a condition of formation of bioethical outlook in the epoch of digital medicine demands a continuous study of biomedical ethics at all stages of professional training of nurse personnel. 

Key words:spirituality, religiousness, nurses, biomedical methods
