Nurse-Family Partnership

Nurse-Family Partnership at UF Health Jacksonville is a two-year home-visit program for new parents living in high-risk communities. Specially trained nurses provide education and support to first-time mothers early in the pregnancy through the child's second birthday.

Program Goals

  • Improve pregnancy outcomes by helping women engage in good preventive health practices, improving their diets, and reducing their use of cigarettes, alcohol, and illegal substances.
  • Improve child health and development by helping parents provide responsible and competent care.
  • Improve the family's economic self-sufficiency by helping parents develop a vision for their future, plan future pregnancies, continue their education, and find work.
