Little is known about how students learn spiritual caregiving. A phenomenological study was conducted to examine the experience of Korean nursing students in a spiritual care practicum. Interviews with 12 students were analyzed and organized into 40 themes, 17 theme clusters, and five categories describing their experience in the practicum. Students initially experienced burdens and helplessness, followed by improvement of coping skills, self-reflection, and spiritual growth.
