Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The blood supply to the nephron is through the afferent arteriole.

The afferent arteriole comprises of blood vessels that branch from the renal artery to supply blood to the nephron. They also perform special roles in the regulation of blood pressure being part of the tubuloglomerular feedback mechanism. 

I hope this answers your question.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
