While the government has put forwards several programs associated with community services under a nursing guideline linking nursing facilities with community, few nursing facilities seem to make use of them effectively. In such a circumstance, this study was aimed at surveying parents' comprehensive and extensive needs for nursing services associated with community services, and thereupon, suggesting the ways for the successful nursing services meeting the needs from parents as well as community, and thereby, providing some data useful to development of the nursing services ensuring individual children's rights of being nursed as well as meeting the social needs. To this end, the researcher surveyed parents - with their children being cared by nursing facilities - for their life styles and their perception of community services. In this vein, the community services of nursing facilities were divided into four areas such as community services, community PR, engagement in community and use of community resources, and thereupon, current community service programs were analyzed to determine the differences among them depending on parents' needs and their demographic variables, and thereby, the effects of the community service programs on parents' comprehensive needs for community services were analyzed.
