Nurse-Family Partnership

Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) focuses on 1st time mothers; during a 1st pregnancy the best chance exists to promote & teach positive health & development behaviors between a mother & her baby. Registered nurses deliver NFP fostering a powerful bond between nurse & mother. An NFP client begins with her nurse home visitor during her first trimester & continues through the child’s 2nd birthday. This intervention during pregnancy allows for any critical behavioral changes needed to improve the health of the mother & child. The NFP National Office provides intensive education for nurse home visitors who utilize Visit Guidelines, clinical consultation & intervention resources to translate NFP’s theoretical foundations & content into practice in an adaptable way to each family. NFP agencies enter data from visits into a Clinical Information System. This data is monitored to ensure the program is being implemented with fidelity to the research model, so comparable results are achieved.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Nurse-Family Partnership's program goals are:
1. Improve pregnancy outcomes by helping women engage in good preventive health practices, including thorough prenatal care form their healthcare providers, improving their diets, and reducing their use of cigarettes, alcohol and illegal substances;
2. Improve child health and development by helping parents provide responsible and competent care resulting in an increase in school readiness; and
3. Improve the economic self-sufficiency of the family by helping parents develop a vision for their own future, plan future pregnancies, continue their education and find work.

Nurse-Family Partnership National Service Office's goals are to continue to serve more and more families with the highest program quality possibly and provide our nurses and agencies with world class customer service.

Nurse-Family Partnership's program goals are ongoing and every visit a nurse makes to a new mom is work towards those goals. Program outcomes are tracked locally and nationally to ensure quality implementation of NFP.
Nurse-Family Partnership National Service Office's goals of growth, quality and delivering world class customer service will be realized through the following work:
• Work with other evidence-based home visiting programs to get the Maternal Infant Early Childhood Home Visiting program which is federal funding stream to states reauthorized.
• Evaluate options for increasing the scale of our program in certain geographic areas in order to show a direct impact on a community when Nurse-Family Partnership is implemented at scale.
• Continuous quality improvement work will focus on implementation efficiency issues in order serve more families and custom plans will be worked on as needed to strengthen program outcomes.
• Our customer service to NFP agencies is being greatly strengthened through ongoing work to establish an on-demand, customizable report portal for all NFP agencies.

Nurse-Family Partnership has the highest level of evidence that it is an effective program through three randomized controlled trials and strong outcomes from those trials:
• Improved prenatal health
• Fewer childhood injuries
• Fewer subsequent pregnancies
• Increased intervals between births
• Increased maternal employment
• Improved school readiness

Nurse-Family Partnership has a network of more than 230 agencies across the country implementing the NFP program and each of these agencies is connected with their communities.

The data from every visit a nurse makes to a family is recorded in Nurse-Family Partnership's national data system allowing for local reports that can truly help an agency recognize their strengths and areas where they can improve.
Nurse-Family Partnership works with other early childhood home visiting programs for federal funding and advocacy.

Nurse-Family Partnership has grown to serve families in 43 states. We have begun to serve Native American/Tribal families in the last few years and we are are constantly evaluating ways we can improve our program for the families we are serving. We have helped bring federal funding to states for Nurse-Family Partnership and other evidence-based home visiting programs.

With all of our work and progress toward serving more families, we would like to serve even more; to have increased and meaningful levels of participation within communities being served by Nurse-Family Partnership and showing how we can truley help break the cycle of poverty and positively impact the health and development of babies and their families.
