JOB OBJECTIVE: 

Nurse-Family Partnership, a maternal and early childhood home visiting program, fosters long-term success for first-time moms, their babies, and society.  Nurse-Family Partnership's maternal health program introduces vulnerable first-time parents to caring maternal and child health nurses. This program allows nurses to deliver the support first-time moms need to have a healthy pregnancy, become knowledgeable and responsible parents, and provide their babies with the best possible start in life.  For more information go to www.nursefamilypartnership.org.
