Religious Surrender and Attendance Satisfaction Scale: Validation of an Instrument for Healthcare Practice and Research

Document Type


Publication Date



Many instruments have been developed to determine whether someone claims to be religious, but they do not address the degree to which someone is satisfied with their religious commitment. Therefore, an instrument was revised to measure both a person’s level of religious commitment and satisfaction with that level of religious commitment. The instrument was named the Religious Surrender and Attendance Satisfaction Scale (RSASS). This study was conducted to determine initial validity for the satisfaction portion of the RSASS. Construct validity measures provided initial confirmation of the utility of RSASS as a measure of satisfaction with religious commitment that can be used by nurses in practice and research.
