Evidence-Based Home Visitation Programs Work to Put Children First
Weise, Cheryl L.
Journal of Applied Research on Children, v5 n1 Article 19 2014
When low-income women become parents for the first time, they often need support, education and encouragement to be the best parent they can be. They truly want to succeed. Desire, unfortunately, is not enough. These women are usually most open to health care assistance, parenting tools, and a therapeutic relationship with a community health worker who provides in-home services. The best partnership for a therapeutic relationship is between a new mother and a nurse. Efficient home visitation programs can save lives and taxpayer dollars. Nurse-Family Partnership pairs an experienced bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) registered nurse (RN) with a first-time low-income mother from pregnancy until her baby turns two years old. Without quality support the lives of our most vulnerable citizens can be in jeopardy.
