Certified home care agencies are challenged to meet an increasing demand for services while faced with a predicted severe nursing shortage. Meeting this demand will depend on an agency's ability to recruit and retain a qualified nursing staff. Knowledge of the extent of the nursing shortage, along with information of administrators' perceptions of the problem and activities they have implemented to alleviate a shortage will provide information to meet this new challenge.
