NFP - Community Spotlight

St. Luke's Nurse-Family Partnership on RCN-TV's 2011 Community Spotlight Program

The Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is a community health program that helps transform the lives of women who are pregnant with their first child.

The NFP focuses on low-income, first-time pregnant women. Registered nurses work with the mothers-to-be during pregnancy to promote and teach positive health and attachment behaviors between a mother and her baby. The goals of the Nurse-Family Partnership are to improve pregnancy outcomes, improve child health and development and improve the economic self-sufficiency of the family.

For more information about Nurse-Family Partnership, call Sara Klingner, MSN, RN, Program Manager, at 484-526-2778.
