Professional interest in spirituality and religion is growing. In light of this growth, the ethical standards designed to guide social workers' conduct in the area of religion have never been more important. This article explores perceptions of compliance with the profession's ethical standards that address religion among a sample of graduate students (N=303) affiliated with the National Association of Social Workers. Findings indicated relatively high levels of compliance. These perceptions were independent of a number of demographic, spiritual, and religious variables. Implications for social work education and practice are discussed.
