Read from the Book

As readers of the fifth edition, we think you will be pleased with the changes and additions that have been made. Much of this is due to the fact that two new co-authors have been added to the text. As the first author, I feel profoundly blessed to have two gifted and caring family nurses join me in updating and enriching the fifth edition''s content and presentation. Dr. Vicky Bowden is a well-known nursing author, practitioner, and educator. Dr. Elaine Jones is also very experienced and expert in family nursing education, practice, and research with families with deaf members. Their positive contributions have made revising this text an exciting and very positive endeavor. We each revised about one third of the chapters, but carefully reviewed and made suggestions to the primary revisor on the other chapters to make them more comprehensive and relevant. Great strides have been made in the field of family nursing since this text''s inception in 1980 and the additions and changes in this text parallel family nursing''s growth. There has been a proliferation of texts in family nursing that contain in-depth discussions of theories, research, and practice. The increase in publications about family nursing; the inception of the Journal of Family Nursing in 1995; the growing incorporation of family nursing into ANA Standards of Nursing Practice, NANDA nursing diagnoses, and the Nursing Intervention Classification (NIC); the holding of national and international family nursing conf
