Family-Focused Nursing Care Book

The textbook Family-Focused Nursing Care (2015), published by F.A. Davis, contains 15 chapters. The F.A. Davis website provides the table of contents and a sample textbook chapter:  An Instructor Guide is also available for use by faculty members with supplemental learning activities (i.e., case studies, learning activities, web links, NCLEX questions). However, in the writing of the textbook, the authors of each chapter wrote additional information that exceeded publication page limits. The book editors have decided to make this supplementary content available in this Instructor Manual Companion for faculty use. When teaching the chapter content, these resources will provide additional background information and ideas to share with students. This additional content also provides theoretical background that supports the textbook. You may connect with the authors of the various chapters directly by contacting the Glen Taylor Nursing Institute for Family and Society

Dr. Sharon Denham developed a biography for family nursing leaders within North America for the textbook. Dr. Janice M. Bell, the Editor of the Journal of Family Nursing was invited to develop a list of 30 foundational family nursing leaders from around the world ( In collaboration with each of these international family nursing colleagues, she wrote a short biography for those outside of North America. Her assistance in this process was greatly valued.
