This book Family Health Care Nursing is written by Joanna Rowe Kaakinen, Deborah Padgett Coehlo, Rose Steele, and Melissa Robinson. Ask anyone about a time they were affected by something that happened to one of their family members and you will be overwhelmed by the intensity of the emotions and the exhaustive details. Each person is significantly influenced by their family and the structure, function, and processes within the family. Even people who don’t interact with their families have been shaped by their families. The importance and connection between individuals and their families have been extensively studied in a variety of disciplines, including nursing.
The purpose of this book is to provide nursing students, as well as practicing nurses, with the understanding, knowledge, and guidance to practice family nursing. Since the last edition, there have been many changes in families, family health, and policies that affect the health of families. Each chapter in this edition reflects those changes with up-to-date, current, and evidence-based information.

Excellent resource. “…very readable and at the level of undergraduate or graduate nursing programs. He nicely covers family and health topics, including how they are affected by socioeconomic and cultural factors, how people define family networks and the role of nurses in caring for families. It also does a thorough job of discussing the theoretical basis of family nursing, provides numerous examples of current research and suggests areas that need further investigation.”
