One of the key strategies in the students’ process of learning is being affected by role models. Recognition of the spiritual strategies of role model instructors for when nursing students are exposed to threats and obstacles to spiritual growth can enable nurses to deal with such situations. This study was conducted to investigate the experiences of nursing students about the spiritual strategies of role model instructors in the role modeling process. In this qualitative study, 22 nursing students were selected based on purposive sampling in 2012. Data were analyzed through content analysis. Data from three focus group discussions (n=20) and two individual interviews with nursing students were collected from five nursing schools in Tehran. Spiritual strategies for role modeling were classified in two main categories: religious beliefs establishment and commitment to ethics. The use of teaching strategies based on spirituality by role model instructors in hidden curriculum was an expression of their religious beliefs in the face of the challenges and obstacles that nursing students confront in their profession, and these strategies helped the spiritual growth of nursing students. It is therefore recommended to promote spiritual development in nursing education, and employ the spiritual strategies of role model instructors to encourage the spiritual growth of nursing students, on whom public health depends.
