Just for Students

Student Representative, Paen Smith, SNM

Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind, or forgotten. Lilo

There are times as students where mentally we are drained, emotionally we are fragile, spiritually we are lost, and physically we are exhausted. Remember, you are NOT alone. Here at CNMA we can HELP! There are experienced volunteer CNMs in your area, or in your desired profession, who are willing to listen, guide, enlighten and motivate you. To be part of the new CNMA mentoring program please email me with your school and program, expected graduation date, where you hope to practice and your field of interest. We will work hard to match you up with a mentor that is just right for you!

If you are a CNM who is interested in being a mentor, please contact Paen at
