Nurse-Family Partnership© (NFP) International

The Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) has demonstrated consistent and enduring effects on maternal and child health outcomes in targeted populations of low-income, first-time mothers and their families in the United States. NFP is the first early intervention method to find reductions in maternal and child mortality. 

Based on Proven Method

Nurse-Family Partnership is a licensed program that comes with a set of core model elements. It has a clear clinical model and includes Visit-to-Visit guidelines and specifications for nurse competencies, nurse education and data collection. Educated nurse home visitors visit clients in their home starting early in the pregnancy and continuing until the child’s second birthday, using a strength-based approach.
