Nursing assessment determines the health status of individuals. Assessment, in this case refers to collection of data that culminates in problem identification or a diagnostic statement which considers not on physiological parameters, but also how the human being interacts with the whole environment (Edelman, Mandle & Kudzma, 2014). Behavior pattern recognition supports our understanding of health of individuals and is reflected in nursing theories such as those initially developed by nursing theorists such as Newman ( Edelman, Mandle & Kudzma, 2014). The Theoretical perspectives that guide nursing process with assessment of the family are : The family developmental theory, Risk factor theory , family structural theory (family in crisis) and system theory (family viewed as a whole); the theory that is the most appealing to this writer would be the family developmental theory. This theory studies families from a life-cycle perspective and tasks in each life cycle, (Edelman, Mandle & Kudzma, 2014). This theory shows that family structure, interaction and function is viewed with the environment at each stage of family development. If the life cycle is interrupted, then there could be a delay in progression.
