Introduction: Undoubtedly, health is the most important aspect of human life and various factors in a person’s life can have a key role in this issue. Hence, the purpose of the present research was to investigate the role of secularism and spiritual experiences in prediction of public health in nursing and midwifery students.

Methods: The research method was descriptive and correlational. The statistical population of the study included all nursing and midwifery students studying at the Jundishapur University of Ahvaz during year 2015, 205 of which were selected by random sampling. To data collection, the Health survey questionnaire (SF36), secularism measurement scale and daily spiritual experience scale (DSES) were used. The data was analyzed through Pearson correlation and multivariate regression.

Results: Pearson correlation results showed that there was a significant relationship between public health and secularism, and spiritual experiences (P < 0.05) and inter regression results showed that secularism and spiritual experiences together explained 51.5% of the variance of public health.

Conclusions: Given that secularism and spiritual experiences were significant predictors of public health, the public health level of students can be promoted by reduction of secularism perspective and increase of spirituality.

Keywords: Public Heath, Secularism, Spiritual Experiences, Nursing, Midwifery
