NURSE FAMILY PARTNERSHIP OF SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY

Nurse Family Partnership (NFP) is an evidence-based, community health program that helps transform the lives of vulnerable mothers pregnant with their first child. Each mother served by NFP is partnered with a registered nurse early in her pregnancy and receives ongoing nurse home visits that continue through her child’s second birthday. Independent research proves that communities benefit from this relationship — every dollar invested in Nurse- Family Partnership can yield more than five dollars in return.
