Two University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) School of Nursing faculty have been elected to the Alabama Chapter Board of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP).

Steadman McPeters, DNP, CRNP, CRNP-AC, RNFA, will serve as Secretary and Jeremy Jordan, MSN, CRNP, CPNP-AC, CCRN, will serve as Communications/Membership Director.

NAPNAP is the professional home for pediatric nurse practitioners and other advanced practice nurses who care for children. It is the only national organization dedicated to improving the quality of health care for infants, children and adolescents and to advancing the pediatric nurse practitioner’s role in providing that care.

McPeters is an assistant professor in the UAB School of Nursing with research and clinical interests focusing on pediatric surgery, pediatric obesity and pediatric forensic nursing. He recently developed a student membership group for nurse practitioner students in Alabama as an arm of the Nurse Practitioner Alliance of Alabama (NPAA).

Jordan is an instructor in the UAB School of Nursing and works in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Children’s of Alabama. His clinical responsibilities include developing, implementing and re-evaluating plans of care for patients, responding to codes throughout the hospital, serving as an intensive care consultant for other health care teams, assisting with educating resident physicians and nursing staff, and serving as a patient and family advocate and educator.

McPeters earned his Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) from the School in 2009. Jordan is a two-time alumnus of UAB. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Management in 2011 and his MSN in 2014 after completing the School’s Accelerated Master’s in Nursing Pathway (AMNP).

The UAB School of Nursing is ranked 13th in overall graduate programs, among the top five public schools of nursing in the country by U.S. News and World Report, and offers innovative bachelor's, master's, and doctoral programs, including the state’s only PhD in Nursing degree and a DNP degree offering BSN, MSN and Nurse Anesthesia Pathways; more than 10 specialty nurse practitioner tracks, advanced nursing executive majors in administration and informatics, and an Accelerated Master's in Nursing Pathway (AMNP) for students who already have one degree.
