University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) School of Nursing instructor and Acute Care Pediatric NP Specialty Track Coordinator Jeremy Jordan, MSN, CRNP, CCRN, CPNE-AC, CNE, was elected to the National Board of the Acute Care Special Interest Group of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP).

“I am looking forward to serving on a national board to advance the APRN role and improve the quality of care delivered to acutely ill and injured children,” Jordan said.

The NAPNAP is the professional association for pediatric nurse practitioners (PNPs) and all pediatric-focused advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs). Founded in 1973 with more than 8,000 members nationwide, it is the first professional society for nurse practitioners and remains the only national organization dedicated to both advancing the APRN role and improving the quality of health care for infants, children and adolescents. Members of this group include national child health experts, respected authors, distinguished faculty and practicing clinicians who represent many facets of pediatric health care delivery.

The Acute Care PNP Special Interest Group was established to provide a forum for the promotion of nurse practitioners and other advanced practice nurses functioning in pediatric acute and critical care roles and providing care to children in these settings. With an increasing number of APRNs practicing in varied settings with more acutely ill children being managed by these practitioners, this special interest group seeks to provide diverse educational opportunities, leadership, mentorship and guidance for APRNs practicing in pediatric acute care.

Jordan formerly served as a board member of the Alabama Chapter of the NAPNAP. He is a graduate of the School’s Accelerated Master’s in Nursing Pathway (AMNP), having earned his MSN in 2014 and is currently enrolled in the School’s PhD in Nursing program.
