Nurse Family Partnership is a FREE nurse-led home visitation program, offered by Johnson County department of Health. First time mothers are paired with a nurse home visitor. The mother-to-be and her nurse meet regularly through her pregnancy, the birth of her newborn until the child turns two. The nurse home visitor provides support, encouragement and guidance.
A nurse supports first time mom’s to:
- Have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.
- Become the best Mom she can be.
- Learn about breastfeeding, child development and safety practices that allow first time Mom’s to build their confidence.
- Get referrals for childcare, healthcare, job training and other support services in our community.
- Follow their dreams for the future.
Any woman can enroll in the FREE Nurse-Family Partnership program who:
- Lives in Johnson County

“I was seventeen and pregnant with my first child. Because of their support and counseling, I sought prenatal care and learned about breastfeeding. I stayed in school. They gave me a chance to dream and taught me I didn't have to be a statistic. I graduated from college in the top ten of my nursing class with my BSN.” – Anonymous
“My nurses were experts at what they did. Any question I had, they had the answer or helped me find a solution.” - Shoustone
