Nurse-Family Partnership

First-Time Pregnancy

Nurse-Family Partnership® is a nurse-led, evidence based home visitation program proven to significantly improve the health, well-being, and economic self-sufficiency for children and their families. Nurse-Family Partnership matches each first-time mothers-to-be with a registered nurse who visits her in her home during and after pregnancy. The visits continue after the birth of her baby until the child turns two years old. Nurse-Family Partnership is a free program to all eligible women.

In addition to providing health education about pregnancy and newborn care, the nurse is a source of support and resources in all areas which the client finds a need. Together, they work to accomplish goals set by the mother, such as continuing their educational path and employment. With over 30 years of experience, Nurse-Family Partnership currently serves more than 30,000 families in 43 states, 6 tribal communities, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Positive outcomes for clients served by Texas’ Nurse-Family Partnership include:

  • 89% babies born are full term
  • 91% babies born are at a healthy weight
  • 87% of mothers initiate breastfeeding
  • 93% of children received all recommended immunizations by 24 months
