Nurse-Family Partnership: Facts and Stats

The Nurse-Family Partnership is a life-changing program that combines compassion with science. For an at-risk young woman who’s not prepared to care for a child, a new baby can mean the onset—or continuation—of poverty, conflict, and despair.

Nurse-Family Partnership’s breakthrough solution: Provide expectant mothers with a relationship they can count on. A committed and compassionate nurse makes regular home visits over 30 months, from before birth until the baby is age two.

But Nurse-Family Partnership isn’t just a heartfelt social program. More than 30 years of randomized, controlled trials show that families who participate in the Nurse-Family Partnership model fare better: Less incidence of drug and alcohol abuse, better employment for the moms, and better performance in school by the kids. A program that seems so intuitively right is also scientifically sound.
