        The Family Assessment Paper requires you to select a family to interview.  You will develop 3 questions for each of the categories based on Gordon’s 11 Functional Health Patterns.  You will write a paper of 1,000-1,250 words where you analyze your family assessment.  You will briefly summarize the findings for each functional health pattern and identify two or more wellness nursing diagnoses based on your family assessment.

 

After interviewing the family, compile the data and analyze the responses.

 

In 1,000-1,250 words, summarize the findings for each functional health pattern for the family you have selected.

 

Identify two or more wellness nursing diagnoses based on your family assessment. Wellness and family nursing diagnoses are different than standard nursing diagnoses.
