The years since 1990 have constituted a period of tremendous progress in the state of the science of home care nursing. Indeed, the 1990s may become known as the decade in which research on clinical nursing practice issues assumed a prominent place in the broader domain of home health care research. This scientific progress has preliminary implications for clinical practice. The implications, however, extend beyond clinical practice to education, policy, and research priorities.
