Nurse-Family Partnership originated in New York State, where the first of three randomized, controlled trials were conducted in Elmira to test the program’s effectiveness. Since 2003, the NYC Nurse-Family Partnership has expanded to become the largest urban site in the nation, serving all five boroughs in New York City. Since 2006, NFP has expanded across the state to serve low-income, first-time mothers and their families in the counties of Chemung, Chautauqua, Erie, Monroe, Nassau, Niagara, Onondaga and Westchester. Over 40 years of evidence show the measurable, long-lasting difference Nurse-Family Partnership makes in the lives of moms and their children. Meet NFP moms and nurses in our video.
