New York Times Op-Ed: The Power of Nursing

Yesterday, the New York Times featured an Op-Ed by David Bornstein discussing a groundbreaking imitative, the Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP). Mr. Bornstein, known for his coverage of social innovations, outlined how the NFP arranges for registered nurses to make regular home visits to first-time low-income or vulnerable mothers. This program has resulted in improved health for mothers and their children, while also contributing to greater society by preventing child abuse and costly hospital admissions from infants.
