This study investigated nursing students' ways of thinking about home-visit rehabilitation by questionnaire. Eighty-one nursing students who had a practical nurse license in a certain vocation were given a lecture on rehabilitation. Before and after this lecture, they filled out questionnaires about the lecture contents. The rate of valid answers was 96.3%. The lecture created interest among students in home-visit rehabilitation significantly. Subjects who wanted to learn the knowledge and skills of rehabilitation and who felt the necessity of home-visit rehabilitation increased over 15% and 10% respectively. The lecture had a positive effect on almost all students with regard to their understanding of home-visit rehabilitation. I think that home-visit nursing practice is important for learning to relate and communicate with patients including their family and this is necessary knowledge and skill for rehabilitation to some degree. Education of rehabilitation was very useful for understanding home-visit nursing.
