Pregnant women with social risk factors lack of psychological and finical resources, and on Medicaid are at a higher risk for negative pregnancy outcomes. These women require support, guidance, and assistance from health or social services that can meet with them geographically and psychologically (Glavin, 2013). Nurses all over the world share the same beliefs and values of promoting of health and prevention of diseases, holistic care no matter the living conditions, collaboration with the government, client, and health organizations, caring and understanding relationship, and independence in public health (DM). In the United States, a Nurse-Family Partnership is a free voluntary program that services new high-risk mothers to have a health pregnancy, improve the child development and health, and become more economically efficient. A nurse that has been specially trained visits the first time mother throughout the entire pregnancy and continues until the baby reaches the age of two. With each visit, the nurse offers support and any crucial information the mother will need to know for present and future care of the child. Public health nurses obtain knowledge from public and social health disciplines to protect and promote the health of the population. Nurses strive to create societal conditions to support health for an individual, families, and communities within the states.
