RN BSN for Nurse Family Partnership Program
Visiting Nurse Service Signature Care • Webster, NY
Posted 17 days ago
NURSE FAMILY PARTNERSHIP - Nurse Home Visitor
Nurse-Family Partnership is a research-based program that has been demonstrated to significantly improve critical outcomes for at-risk women and their children who received services in local communities as specified in the NFP guidelines. The three major goals of the program are to (a) improve prenatal outcomes, (b) improve child health and development, and (c) improve self-sufficiency of the family.
The NFP nurse establishes a trusting, therapeutic one on one relationship with low income, first time mothers, who voluntarily consent to bi-weekly visits throughout pregnancy and the child's second year of life. The nurse assesses the physical, emotional, social and environmental needs of the family and provides counseling, health education, referral and case management in such areas as prenatal and postpartum care, nutrition, parenting, child health and development, family planning and life course development. The partnership between the nurse and the client is the basis for change, as the nurse helps the woman to clarify her goals for herself and her child and obtain the skills she needs to accomplish her goals.
