In these particular circumstances, -collapse- can be used to similar effect
as -reshape wide-, but whether the result is better than a long form is
doubtful:


*************
clear*
set obs 230
gen int nurshome=_n
expand 2
bys nurshome: gen byte observation=_n

collapse (firstnm) firstobs=observation  /* 
*/ (lastnm) lastobs=observation, by(nurshome)

l, noo sepby(nurshome)
*************

-collapse- will make it.
