To determine means of improving the efficiency of home nursing services, we conducted an experimental pretest-posttest study to compare the time spent by home visiting nurses (HVNs) on providing care with or without assistance. HVNs' job-related satisfaction levels were also compared. Forty-four clients in six visiting nursing offices in Fukuoka prefecture were selected for this study, which was conducted between July 2009 and January 2010. With assistance, HVNs' total care time and time spent performing trivial tasks decreased and time spent on communicating or teaching increased. Furthermore, HVNs were more satisfied with providing care than with their usual visits. We conclude that introduction of a skill mix might improve home visiting nursing service efficiency through shortening the HVNs' length of stay at a client's home.
