Student Spotlight


Node Smith is in his final year of the ND program at the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM), where he has demonstrated a determination to embody the principles of naturopathic medicine, both in his personal life as well as in the scholastic foundation of his career. Node has been instrumental in connecting students with elders within the naturopathic profession, founding the ReVitalization Retreat during his first year, and moving on to incorporate the Association for Naturopathic ReVitalization (ANR) in his third year. He is a firm advocate of the creative potential of the human spirit, and our evolving ability to use this creative capacity to heal ourselves, and our relationships. Node currently serves as the founding chairman of ANR, and has served in the capacities of NMSA Philosophy Chair, ZRT Cup coordinator, and Unity Church of Portland youth minister. Node has just returned to NCNM to begin his primary clinical rotations after a year long pilgrimage around the country by bicycle, plane, and boat.Charley Cropley, ND, in Boulder, Colorado graciously serves as Node Smith’s mentor and personal friend; together they work toward opening the first Integral Naturopathic In-patient facility
