I.INTRODUCTION
 A family is a unit composed not only of children but of men, women, an occasional animal, and the common cold.~Ogden Nash
Ogden Nash was basically a humorist, but such quote made a lot of sense. To interpretit, it must mean that the family is a model which, physical manifestations would include thepresence of a man one calls father, a woman one calls mother, and of course those sons anddaughters running about to get their tasks done as they, undeliberately, grow older. A sleepingdog or a cat basking on the sunlight at the patio would constitute to the occasional animal hewas talking about. And as for the common cold, generally, this would mean a highly contagious,self-limiting disease brought about by different strains of viruses with symptoms of sore throat,runny nose, nasal congestion, sneezing and coughing.So how did common cold get to associate itself with the family? One would say, itscommunicability is the primary factor, yes. Looking beyond the natural scope of things, thepredetermined communicability of the common cold lies on the word, common, not as of theordinary, but as of the shared. Usually, in a family, if one child is coming down with a cold,surely, a sibling will follow, especially if such come from a depressed family devoid of theadvantages of nutrients to keep their immune system on the pink of health. Perhaps Nash wasonly trying to imbibe to us the power of family, that even diseases are shared. A loving family isworth all the riches in the world, for they will always be there for you, no matter what happens.Ergo, no poor family is too poor if they have a family deeply rooted in love and compassion for each other.On a more serious note, In Article 15: The Family, of the 1987 CONSTITUTION OF THEREPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES: “
The State recognizes the Filipino family as the foundationof the nation. Accordingly, it shall strengthen its solidarity and actively promote its total development.
This reinforces the value of the family in community health nursing, as it playsmediator between the first and third type of clientele, the individual and the society.
 
The family, being the crucial entity of the society is also deemed as the critical unit of care since it is an efficient and accessible avenue for much of the community health nursingeffort. How ironic to say that a family shares a disease to be family! As aspiring nurses, it is theduty of the researches to at least, be there for the family to reinforce health goals and promoteself-reliance, that it’s a deliberate nature of the family to share, yes, but not illness. FamilyHealth Nursing is a level of community health nursing practice focused or directed on family asthe unit of care/ client, with health as a goal and nursing as a medium or provider of care.Family-centered care is the key concept in community health nursing practice.Family Case Analysis is an instrument utilized by PHN nurses and student nurses alikein delineating all prevailing problems of the community by centering on the families constitutingit. Home visits are the number one means in order to accomplish this. In here, the family’shealth needs will be assessed and the nurses, or the student nurses, rather, will provide healthteachings and render nursing care to accommodate and address their inadequacies andliabilities in terms of family life and do something about them.Before the exposure, the student nurses have a main criteria in choosing a family as asubject; 1.) Depressed, 2.) Lack knowledge about healthy lifestyle, 3.) At least four members of the family, 4.) At least have children who are 7 years old and below and the Griffin family suitsare criteria the most. They cannot do health tasks effectively making them at risk with differenthealth hazards.FCA is a tedious and painstaking requirement but it is rewarding enough as it is. Itserved as a wakeup call for all student nurses, making them witnesses of the poverty anddecreasing self-reliance when it comes to healthcare which are becoming ubiquitous in thecommunity at present.. The plain fact that the student nurses were given an opportunity to helpthese people and make them happy made all working days worth their while.
A.Objectivesa. Short Term: Student Centered
After 2 days of home visit to Barangay Sapalibutad, the student nurses will:
Familiarize themselves with the physical surroundings of the community.
Choose a family that would serve as the center of study for the family case analysis.
