    Promoting the health of women and the children in California through provision of high quality care.
    Supporting and promoting professional achievement among nurse-midwives.
    Representing nurse-midwives as leaders and as major resources for the development and delivery of quality health care for women, infants, and families in California.
    Defining and promoting nurse-midwifery practice in the state of California.
    Initiating, supporting and/or opposing legislation affecting the health of California women and infants, and the practice of nurse-midwifery.
