NURSE FAMILY PARTNERSHIP - Nurse Home Visitor
The Nurse-Family Partnership Program (NFP) is a nationally
recognized model of nurse home visiting that improves health,
development, and life outcomes for young mothers and their
children over the long term.
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.
