As home care expands in volume and complexity, the executives' capacity to manage difficult cost and financing problems and to do strategic planning may make the difference in quality of care and possibly even viability. The NLN will to bring together a group of home care managers and educators in nursing administration and management science, to develop a plan for strengthening nurses' management skills in home care.
