In 2019, Nurstory partnered with Nurse-Family Partnership (https://www.nursefamilypartnership.org/), a organization that empowers first-time moms to transform their lives and create better futures for themselves and their babies.
NFP nurses and nurse supervisors came together to remember and crystallize stories of how and why they do the work they do and what care really means in the contexts in which they work.
A story about an NFP nurse's client who was making an adoption plan for her baby, the nurse's own losses, and the varied definitions of motherhood.
A story about a new NFP nurse's self preservation, helping to preserve the health of a new mother, and how a call to Child Protective Services actually saved a family.
A story about being a new NFP nurse, trying to make a difference, and one particular client whose trauma challenged her on a personal level.
A story about a new mom whom almost everyone had given up on, being her nurse, and showing up.
A story about a new NFP nurse, a mentor, and figuring out how not to feel like a fraud.
A story about a new NFP nurse, a client who needed empathy, and going all in.
A story about being a mother, a nurse, and advocating for new mothers with disabilities whose children are taken from them.
A story about how an NFP nurse went from doing end-of-life care to beginning-of-life care, and why.
A story about an NFP nurse, her son, and explaining to him why she does the work she does.
