Without passionate, committed nurses there is no NFP program.
The benefits of our programs extend to nurses as well, giving them the confidence to speak to clients when they know there is financial support for their passions. Nurses feel more secure asking clients about their dreams and developing a path to financial stability when a resource exists to support their clients’ dreams and ambitions for themselves and their families.
Friends also enables nurses to pursue their desire for academic attainment through tuition reimbursement for graduate-level education and support attendance at professional conferences. We support training and professional development opportunities the Department of Health does not cover.
Friends provides funds for NYC NFP nurses to attend specialized trainings and conferences, like the annual NFP National Service Office Symposium, which better equips them to care for NFP moms and their babies. Friends also hosts nurse appreciation events to boost morale and to provide some reprieve for these incredible health care workers.
“Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to grow in knowledge, through my growth my clients grow, and through their growth the world changes!” – Adelmis Grano de Oro, RN
NSO National Symposium
Every year, the National Service Office for Nurse-Family Partnership and Child First hosts an education summit for more NFP’s national nurse workforce, network partners, and maternal health experts. This convening allows over 1000 attendees to connect, share knowledge, inspire one another and discuss opportunities for growth. With a different theme every year, this event presents the latest research relevant to nurse visitation and maternal and child health, in addition to continuing education credits that are critical for maintaining their nursing license. More information about the annual National Symposium can be found here.
