Jodi Stedman, ARNP-PNP/Acute Care
How long have you been a member of PCICS?
Why did you choose the Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care field?
For the challenge.
Please list a few of your most recent accomplishments:
I am working with a team to develop Sepsis screening and implementation.
I also helped to implement Delirium screening and interventions for the PICU
Why did you join PCICS?
I worked in Pediatric Oncology for 15 years. I am new to the Cardiac arena. I am looking to continue my education and knowledge with post op cardiac patients. I thought PCICS would help me to keep gaining in cardiac knowledge.
Connecting with other providers who care for cardiac patient is helpful
I have been a nurse for 23 years. I have had my PNP for 10 yrs and recently got my Acute Care NP ~2 yrs ago. Prior to working in the PICU, I
was a pediatric oncology nurse/NP for 15 yrs. I have found the PICU very challenging and a great place to learn new things every day.
I have been married for 20 yrs and have 3 children–17, 15 and 11. We also have a dog and two cats. My family keeps me busy outside of work with chauffeuring kids around town to various activities.
Looking at colleges for my 17 yr old who graduates next year. Teaching my 15 yr old to drive and Watching my 11 yr old play baseball or basketball.
I love to read fiction, sew and be at the beach.
