This paper seeks to clarify four previously elusive concepts of concern to nurses: spiritual perspective, hope, acceptance and self-transcendence. Simultaneous concept analysis (SCA), a method developed by the authors, was used to generate a process model of antecedents, critical attributes and outcomes of all four concepts. This resulted in refined theoretical definitions for each concept. Interrelationships that became apparent among the concepts are discussed and implications of these interrelationships for theory and measurement are presented.
