Nurse-Family Partnership - SC First Steps


Nurse-Family Partnership

Home visitation for first time mothers, from pregnancy until the child turns two.

Evidence Based

Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) helps transform the lives of first-time mothers and their babies. Registered nurses make regular home visits and provide moms with the care and support they need to have a healthy pregnancy, provide responsible and competent care for their children, and become more economically self-sufficient.
