Nurse-Family Partnership

Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is an evidence-based nurse home visitation program, which has been replicated in twenty states drawing national recognition for its positive outcomes. NFP provides nurse home visitation to low-income, first-time mothers. A nurse home visitor educates the mother about the growth and development of her baby and helps her become more self sufficient.
