This paper explores the phenomena of family health from a nursing perspective by examining the view of health in the discipline of nursing, and the view of family health in multiple disciplines. A holistic definition of family health for nursing is proposed which includes five realms of family experience which make up the family health system. The proposed classification is offered as a beginning heuristic model to organize knowledge generation for use in the practice of family nursing.
