The Nurse-Family Partnership has been proven to result in less child abuse and neglect, reduction in mother's subsequent births during their late teens and early twenties, reduction in prenatal smoking, and improvement in cognitive and/or academic outcomes for children. In the program, nurses provide home visits to pregnant women with no previous live births once per month during their pregnancy and the first two years of their children’s lives to teach (i) positive health related behaviors, (ii) competent care of children, and (iii) maternal personal development (family planning, educational achievement, and participation in the workforce).
