Nurse-Family Partnership ® (NFP) helps transform the lives of vulnerable first-time mothers pregnant with their first child through evidence-based nurse home visiting. Each mother NFP serves is partnered with a registered nurse early in her pregnancy and receives ongoing nurse home visits that continue through her child’s second birthday. Independent research shows that communities can benefit from this relationship – every dollar invested in Nurse-Family Partnership can yield up to five dollars in return.
