The traditional health care focus on individual clients is rapidly being replaced by the family as a unit of analysis for education, service, and research. Family nurses in particular are at the forefront of this important movement and their innovative experience can benefit other disciplines that work within the mental and physical health care delivery systems. This article describes two perspectives on current practices in family nursing education and explores critical imperatives for the future. These imperatives provide direction to educators and clinicians across family disciplines in planning for the next century of family-focused health care.
