About Providence Nurse Family Partnership

Providence Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is an evidence-based, community health program with 45 years of research showing significant improvements in the health and lives of first-time parents and their children affected by social and economic inequality. This program succeeds by having specially educated nurses regularly visit first-time parents, starting early in the pregnancy and continuing until the child’s second birthday. Research consistently proves that the partnership between a nurse and the parent is a winning combination that makes a measurable, long-term difference for the whole family. Clients enrolled in this program benefit by getting the care and support they need in order to have a healthy pregnancy. At the same time, families develop a close relationship with the nurse who becomes a trusted resource they can rely on for advice on everything from safely caring for their child to taking steps to provide a stable, secure future for their new family.
