Academic Profile

Dr. Beth Steinfeld is a nationally recognized leader in women’s health primary care nursing education and a 30-plus year provider of primary care to women from medically underserved communities of Brooklyn. In her prior role as Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner Program Director at SUNY Downstate College of Nursing (Brooklyn, NY). she grew a 10-student program to become the largest and most diverse Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner program in the country. Through sustained collaborative grantsmanship, she secured over $5 million in scholarships to support diverse and disadvantaged students through their educational journey in this program. Under her 10-year leadership, the program graduated hundreds of primary care women’s health nurse practitioner providers, who also meaningfully impacted health equity in the medically underserved neighborhoods of Brooklyn and other NYC boroughs and returned to serve as preceptors, instructors, and faculty for hundreds more students at the college.

Dr. Steinfeld is also a nationally recognized clinical expert and is currently the Vice President of the National Certification Corporation Board of Directors. In this role, she has had a significant influence on the development and evaluation of NP credentialing standards that have resulted in the licensure of tens of thousands of nurse practitioners in the obstetric, gynecologic, and neonatal specialties. She will continue to actively participate as a content expert, a women’s health CE reviewer, and a liaison between educational program accreditation organizations and professional certification organization conversations to develop aligned and comprehensive standards for our profession.

Dr. Steinfeld is thrilled to join the faculty and staff of SNAH, where she is committed to developing the WHNP workforce for medically underserved regions in NJ.
