Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is a home visiting program for first time pregnant moms. Enrollment criteria for the program include: first time pregnant mom, less than 26 weeks pregnant, meet income guidelines (same as Medicaid) and voluntarily enroll in the program. The mom and child are visited by their personal nurse until the child turns two years of age.
Samantha was with Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) for over two years. During her time in the program, she graduated from the LPN Program at Gaston College, started working at the hospital and enrolled in the RN Program at Gaston College. She accomplished all this while being pregnant, delivering her daughter and taking care of her mother. Samantha has faced several obstacles with a positive attitude and continues to thrive. She has graduated from the program and thanked NFP for being a great support to her and her family. NFP is very proud of Samantha and thankful that we could be a part of her story.
“This program has meant so much to me being a first-time mom. When my daughter was born, I was a single parent up until she turned 15 months and having nurse Beth to talk to and get parenting skills helped me tremendously. From answering questions or just needing someone to vent to Nurse Beth has been there every step of the way. My family will miss her so much”. (Samantha)
