Southern Nevada Health District: Nurse Family Partnership

Nurse-Family Partnership is an evidence-based best practice model delivered in the community setting. Low-income women pregnant with their first child are partnered with a Registered Nurse early in the pregnancy. Each mother served by the program receives ongoing nurse home visits that continue through her child’s second birthday. Independent research proves that every dollar invested in Nurse-Family Partnership can yield up to five dollars in return to the community. Program goals include improving pregnancy outcomes, improving child health and development, and improving the economic self-sufficiency of the family.

The Southern Nevada Health District Nurse-Family Partnership Program opened its doors to clients in September 2008. This program is a true partnership between the mother and nurse. They agree to work together from pregnancy to the child’s second birthday. To qualify, low-income, first time mothers must enter the program before the 29th week of pregnancy and be willing to commit to the full program.
