Purpose: This study was performed to analyze the visiting nurses` job using Developing a curriculum (DACUM). Methods: The DACUM committee with 6 visiting nurses participated in the workshop. In this workshop, the visiting nurses role was defined and their duties and tasks were identified. After content validation via the experts, the pilot test was conducted to 78 nurses. Results: A total of 13 duties and 82 tasks were identified on the DACUM chart which represented the importance, difficulty, and frequency of tasks with alphabet A, B, and C as its higher degree. Regarding duties, `visiting nursing for high risk group` is the highest, while the lowest was `public welfare events`. Regarding to tasks, `discovering a new patient` was the highest, while `selecting patients and offering medical supplies (nutritional supplement, patch)` was the lowest one. Conclusion: The results showed that visiting nurses working in the visiting health care service center were doing more various duties and tasks than those working according to `Act on Long-term Care Insurance for the Aged`. The results can be used to develop training programs for visiting nurses and evaluation-scale of their job performance.
