Samford Professor Named to State Nursing Board

Posted by Mary Wimberley on 2000-02-02

Samford University assistant nursing professor Joyce R. Chappelear has been appointed by Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman to the Alabama Board of Nursing.

The 13-member board prescribes standards and approves nursing educational programs, examines and licenses Registered Nurse and Licensed Practical Nurse applicants throughout the state, and adopts standards for RN and LPN practice and competency.

Board candidates are screened by a committee of nursing leaders from across the state. Board members represent nursing education, advanced practice and administration. Chappelear is one of two nursing educators on the board.

Chappelear has taught at Samford's Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing since 1990.
