Hi Everyone,

I am new to Allnurses and am so glad I found this site. A little about myself, I love everything nursing. I worked inpatient maternal-child all my life and loved it, but I need a change. I am at a point in my life where I need a more work-like balance career; weekends and holidays off. Thankfully, I have an accepted job offer as a nurse family partnership, and am excited to explore this part of nursing in public health. . If anyone has worked or still working in NFP, please share your experience. What is the orientation period like? I know the training is virtual now but how long is the orientation period? I was told it's for a year. I know the newer NFP model calls for one home visit per day plus two virtuals, is that true? I was told I needed a caseload of 25 to 30 clients, What happens if I don't get that number? Will I be laid off? It is a grant-funded program. What do you like the most about NFP and what do you hate the most? Is there a lot of documentation? And finally, how do you manage to see all your clients? I know this is a lot of questions, but any advice would be greatly appreciated. 

Now that you have worked with this program for a bit, are you able to answer any of the questions you asked? I have an interview with them and I would love to know more about your experience.
