A study of attitudes toward dying patients of 1,061 Minnesota nurses who practiced in the metropolitan area (210 nurses) and outside the metropolitan area (851 nurses) revealed that they supported home care for dying children. They reported they would be willing to care for the dying adult or child in the home but would feel more comfortable if they had added specialized preparation.
