Homework help for nursing students | Nursing homework help
I chose to perform a health assessment of the Smith family. The Smiths consist of 4 members – John, Mary, their son Jack and daughter Sarah. Mary stays at home to take care of her children and household while John is an engineer who works full time. Jack and Sarah are both full-time students; Jack has an academic bent while Sarah is more sports-oriented.
John has a great deal of influence on the dynamics in the traditional nuclear structure, including financial decisions. Mary acts as an emotional mother to her kids and oversees the daily operations of their home. Mary plays a vital role in making sure Jack and Sarah get the proper nutrition, rest and education they require for a healthy development.
Though there is still some room for improvement when it comes to communication within this family unit, overall each member’s roles remain quite clear which allows them to work together towards achieving common goals with relative ease. Understanding how everyone contributes will help us to better understand their needs and allocate resources accordingly.
