I've worked with this program for 2 years. It's awesome and it has made a difference in many lives. It's a life changing program that's needed here in Louisiana. It doesn't replace your regular Doctor's , it contributes.

I was so impressed by the impact that the Nurse-Family Partnership model has in improving young children's health, early learning, and general well-being, in addition to parents' economic development and sense of self-worth, that I am pursuing nursing school specifically in order to join this movement. // I worked with one of the nurse home visitors on an infant and toddler brief for policymakers in Colorado. She entered the home visiting field with interests in maternal/child health but the NFP model had given her such a holistic way to think about supporting families of young children through policy, and her thoughtfulness massively enriched our work.

I would encourage the implementing agencies to use the Nurse-Family Partnership careers page as a central clearinghouse for job opportunity information. I think that some of the agencies do recruiting for their positions directly and do not post on the NFP main site, which would be helpful for people seeking to join in their work.

How did you learn about this organization?

I collaborated with a Nurse-Family Partnership nurse home visitor on an infant and toddler policy brief, and also heard about NFP during a presentation on home visiting by a representative from Invest In Kids. I have noticed several mainstream media outlets such as the NY Times extolling the virtues of this program, and looked more into the research via The Coalition for Evidence-Based Policy. In short, I don't know exactly when I first heard about NFP (perhaps when it was first a GiveWell top-rated charity) but the more research I read about it and the more personal stories I hear, I become more dedicated to pursuing a career as a NFP nurse home visitor.
