Hide Assignment Information

This assignment assesses intended course outcomes(s):

  • Apply the nursing process and evidence-based practice to accurately assess family and community health systems across the lifespan
  • Apply systematic research practices to identify family and community health system needs.
  • Develop appropriate risk reduction and health promotion education plans based on identified family and community risk factors.
  • Develop appropriate risk reduction and health promotion education plans based on identified family and community risk factors. Discuss the multi-dimensional role of the community health nurse in risk reduction and health promotion.

In this assignment, the student will conduct an assessment of a family and apply the nursing process to form a plan of care. The family needs to have at least three members in the household and at least one family member must have a health care need. The family can be of any type of structure (traditional or non-traditional). The student will conduct a genogram which demonstrates patterns of disorders that are prevalent in the family. On the same family the student will then construct an ecomap. An ecomap is a representation of how the family connects to the outside world. Based on this information, the student needs to select a family or community theory (refer to information in LEO classroom) and construct a plan of care based on this theory utilizing the nursing process.

Family genogram
