Nurse-Family Partnership ® (NFP) is an evidence-based community health program for first-time moms that improves pregnancy and birth outcomes, child health and development, and family economic self-sufficiency. By assessing and addressing participating moms’ social risk factors, NFP registered nurses set families on a path toward a better, healthier future. Each mom is partnered with a registered nurse early in her pregnancy and has ongoing health visits with that nurse during pregnancy, after pregnancy and through her child’s second birthday. Louisiana has 13 Nurse-Family Partnership teams, with 2 nursing teams serving families in the Baton Rouge area.
