How to Implement the NFP Model

This maternal-child health program offers communities one of the most promising approaches developed for helping at-risk, low-income families succeed.

The Nurse-Family Partnership National Service Office works with communities interested in implementing the Nurse-Family Partnership model to ensure the program is right for their needs and that broad-based community support can be established and sustained. When community need and commitment come together, the Nurse-Family Partnership is ready for launch through an implementing agency.

Nurse-Family Partnership Implementing Agencies contract with the National Service Office to provide services at a community level. These agencies are administered by a range of non-profit and for-profit entities, including state and county health departments, community-based health centers, nursing associations, and hospitals, generally through maternal and child health services.
