Nurse-Family Partnership

Helping First-Time Parents Succeed

The Nurse-Family Partnership is a voluntary program where specially trained nurses visit vulnerable women in their homes during their first pregnancy and throughout the first two years of their children’s lives to accomplish three goals:

  • Improve pregnancy outcomes by helping women improve their health-related behaviors, including reducing use of cigarettes, alcohol and illegal drugs.
  • Improve child health and development by helping parents provide more responsible and competent care for their children.
  • Improve families’ economic self-sufficiency by helping parents develop a vision for their own future, plan future pregnancies, continue their education and find work.

Join the Partnership

The Nurse-Family Partnership is a true partnership where mother and nurse agree to work together from pregnancy to the child’s second birthday for the health and well being of the child. To qualify a women must be:

  • A first time mother
  • Less than 28 weeks pregnant

If you are a mother-to-be or know of someone who could benefit from the Nurse-Family Partnership, call (702) 759-0779.
