University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Nursing Assistant Professor Jeremy Jordan, PhD, CRNP, CPNP-AC, CCRN, CNE (MSN 2014, PhD 2021), has been elected to the Executive Board of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners as a member-at-large.

The organization includes more than 8,000 pediatric nurse practitioners, family nurse practitioners, and pediatric-focused advanced practice registered nurses across the country. Jordan is one of 11 board members. His term began July 1.

“My goal is to empower our members to be engaged with our organization and ensure that our diverse membership is well represented within our leadership,” Jordan said. “By supporting the members within our organization, we can affect change and further our mission as the global leader in advancing pediatric nursing.”

Earlier this year, Jordan was recognized as one of 50 NAPNAP Emerging Leaders. He also is co-chair of the Acute Care Special Interest Group and serves on the NAPNAP Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee. Jordan also serves on the Editorial Advisory Board for the Journal of Pediatric Health Care, the official journal of NAPNAP. He developed and is co-hosting a podcast series with the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners. The 10-episode series, called Team Peds Talks: The Acute Care Pediatric Nurse Practitioners’ Impact, launched in September 2022.

Jordan is a UABSON alumnus, having completed the Accelerated Masters in Nursing Pathway in 2014 and earning his PhD in 2021 with a focus on pediatric brain injury.

“The UAB School of Nursing instilled in me the importance of finding your professional homes. For me, NAPNAP is a professional home for many aspects of my career including clinical practice, nursing education and research,” Jordan said. “It is because of the support of the School of Nursing that I attend national conferences, present my work, and engage with the organization at a national level. I am truly grateful for a rewarding profession caring for children and their families, my awe-inspiring colleagues, a dedicated professional organization such as NAPNAP, and a school that supports my professional growth.”
