Nurse-Family Partnership



About Us

Northeastern North Carolina Nurse-Family Partnership at Halifax Community College (NE NC NFP at HCC) may provide a free personal nurse to first time moms-to-be who are less than 28 weeks into their pregnancy. Our specially trained nurses will provide education and support starting early in the pregnancy and may continue until the child’s second birthday.

Our goals are to:

  • Improve pregnancy outcomes
  • Improve child health and development
  • Improve the economic self-sufficiency of families within our service area of Edgecombe, Halifax, Hertford, Nash and Northampton counties.

We educate and encourage families to:

  • Engage in preventative health practices
  • Provide responsible and competent care to their child
  • Develop a vision for their own future and their future as a family unit
  • Continue their education
  • Return to work or become gainfully employed

Nurse-Family Partnership is a nationwide program whose vision is “a future where all children are healthy, families thrive, communities prosper and the cycle of poverty is broken”.
