At the heart of Frontier Nursing University is a talented and diverse community of students, alumni, faculty, staff, Couriers and preceptors. Spotlight blogs feature members of our FNU community that are focused on the mission of educating nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners to deliver quality healthcare to underserved and rural populations.
Frontier Nursing University (FNU) preceptor Cohava Kasaev-Chanimov, is being honored as FNU’s Featured Preceptor for the 2020 summer term due to her outstanding dedication to healthcare, service and building up new nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners.
Cohava is a certified nurse-midwife and is a member of the American College of Nurse-Midwives. Cohava opened a private midwifery practice, Attentive Midwifery, in the Bronx in January of 2018 with the intention of providing comprehensive and compassionate care to those in her community who need it most.
Cohava is committed to supporting people of any gender, age and nationality through exceptional, non-judgmental, sexual and reproductive healthcare. The Attentive Midwifery clinic provides walk-in GYN care as well as scheduled appointments and is dedicated to treating patients from all walks of life with kindness and respect. Cohava’s practice also prioritizes couples controlling their birth story and offers a variety of birthing options from “Home Birth” style care to gentle cesarean deliveries.
Although Cohava has spent the past two years opening Attentive Midwifery, where she is the sole-provider for patients and is always on-call for expecting mothers, she never hesitated to partner with FNU to positively impact the future of nursing and midwifery care. Since 2018, Cohava has generously precepted twelve FNU students with wisdom and grace making her a true preceptor superstar!
Sunoz Soroosh, CNEP Class 172, one of FNU the students who studied under Cohava had this to say about her experience:
“Cohava is a compassionate and caring preceptor. She took her time with me to make sure I learned and gained the necessary skills, even when I was so anxious and nervous when I first started! She runs her own midwifery practice with hospital privileges and taught me a lot about that as well, especially about the benefits of providing continuity of care. I am so lucky to have had her as my preceptor.”
By empowering students from various nursing fields, including Women’s Health Care Nurse Practitioner, Nurse-midwifery, and Family Nurse Practitioner, Cohava is leaving a remarkable impression across the nursing community, and we are so grateful to have her on our team.
Thank you, Cohava, for your continued work in advancing nursing and midwifery education and assisting FNU in reaching underserved populations through a Culture of Caring.
