Abstract: Objective: Describe the level of hope and religiosity of patients with chronic renal disease through the Herth Hope Scale and Duke Religiosity Scale and analyze how they correlate. Method: Exploratory, cross-sectional study conducted with 62 patients. The Spearman correlation coefficient was used to assess the relationship between the scales. Results: Hope obtained a mean score of 39 points and intrinsic religiosity, 13.14. Among the scales, statistically significant correlation was found between the items "optimism" with attendance to the religious temple (p = 0.016), beliefs and my way of living (p = 0.008) and effort to live up to the religion (p =0.008); "strength" with effort to live up to the religion (p = 0.043); "ability to give and receive affection" with attendance to the religious temple (0.050), my religious beliefs are what really lie behind my whole approach to life (p = 0.014) and I try hard to carry my religion over into my life (p = 0.032). Conclusion: Religiosity is a positive tool for coping with the healthdisease process.
