Nurse-Family Partnership is more than 40 years old

December 9, 2019

Developed more than 40 years ago by Dr. David Olds, Professor of Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Preventive Medicine and Nursing at the University of Colorado, Denver, Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) involves nurses visiting young, low-income, first-time mothers in their homes, roughly twice a month. These home visits start during pregnancy and continue until children reach their second birthday. This program has now been helping US families for more than 40 years.
