    Abstract:
    The authors present 10 precepts that address the successes, as well as complexities and shortcomings, found in family nursing research as it has been conducted over the past decade. Problems with methodology, data collection and aggregation, random variables, and consistency with the unit of analysis all present challenges to the proper conduct of family nursing research. The authors cite these and other concerns in a critical analysis illustrated by examples from the growing body of family nursing literature.
