Frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, Chi-square, and binary logistic regression statistics were employed for data analyses. Results revealed that the performance of home visit nurses was at a high level. The personal factor significantly associated to home visit nurse performance was perceived standard of performance. While the situational factors relating to the performance were organizational policy, additional training, supervision, and workload (p<0.05).
