Frontier Nursing University (FNU) preceptor Jana Sund, CNM, from Kalispell Regional Health Care, Kalispell, MT, was honored as FNU’s “Featured Preceptor” for the winter term. Jana was nominated by recent nurse-midwifery graduate, Debbie Miller.
With a genuine interest in molding new and future CNMs, Jana constantly gives of herself as a teacher, mother, and women’s care provider. In her position at FamilyBorn Maternity and Women’s Health, she takes a holistic, patient-centered approach to care for all of her patients, which include women from the start of menstruation through menopause.
Jana serves as an National Health Service Corps (NHSC) provider as well as cares for women’s with health insurance coverage. She also started a nonprofit community postpartum depression/mood disorder support group. At its beginning, it served women from her clinic, and since has grown to serve women in the entire Flathead Valley and outlying counties. Jana recently precepted her nominator Debbie, who said she gained a tremendous amount of knowledge from Jana’s practice.
“She has a giving heart and thrives on caring for others,” said Miller. “Each of her patients leave the office with a sense of security, having been heard and their concerns and fear validated.”
Jana is the secretary treasurer of the Montana ACNM affiliate group. She was also the recipient of the Varney award during her time at the University of Utah midwifery program.
Jana will receive a Starbucks gift card as a small token of our appreciation for her being a great preceptor. Thanks for your investment in our FNU students, Jana!
