Family Nursing PartnershipLast Updated 04/12/2018
The Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) is a voluntary programme offered to young mothers having their first baby.
The programme begins in early pregnancy and is orientated to the future health and well-being of the child, and consists of frequent structured home visits until the child is 2 years old. The family nurses who deliver the programme are drawn mainly from health visiting and midwifery and they receive additional training to equip them for the new role.
