Use of inactive nurses as part-time staff in a county health department is making possible expansion of home nursing services in this rural area. This project, under way when Medicare went into effect, is not only providing guidance for other agencies involved in such expansion as a result of the health insurance program, but is demonstrating a kind of nursing service which can provide health care in rural communities where no physician resides.
