More than half of the young women who entered the Nurse-Family Partnership program without a high school diploma have now earned one. Surprised? It’s just one of the ways Nurse-Family Partnership is making a difference for vulnerable young women in North Dakota.

Nurse-Family Partnership nurse home visitors work with low-income young women who are pregnant with their first child, helping these vulnerable young clients achieve healthier pregnancies and births, stronger child development, and a path toward economic self-sufficiency. Nurse-Family Partnership is a rare community health program that has been documented to achieve lasting and significant effects through multiple, well-designed randomized, controlled trials. More than 37 years of research proves that it works.
