Brandi Middour-Oxler D.N.P., CPNP

Transition Nurse Practitioner & Transition Program Coordinator

Dr. Middour-Oxler has an almost 20-year work history that ranges from research scientist, inpatient pediatric CF nurse, to Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. Along the way, she served as president of her nursing class, DNP representative to the Nursing Board, was awarded the prestigious Nursing Leadership Award from her university, and has twice been named to list of Who's' Who in America's Universities and Colleges. Her experience in CF care led to her commitment to research in the area of transition preparations for adolescents with CF. In 2016, Dr. Middour-Oxler completed her doctorate where her final DNP project was the first ever survey to gauge the experience of Cystic Fibrosis patients who were participants in the Journey to Independence transition program. The project included a two-year collaboration with many members of the Emory + Children's CF team. She currently holds the role of CF Transition Coordinator & CF Nurse Practitioner for the Emory + Children's CF Team. She is currently a champion advocate on the national Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Committee, Partnerships for Sustaining Daily Care, whose purpose is to address the issue and burden of adherence to CF daily treatments. Dr. Middour-Oxler is currently working to expand the transition program in her institution down to the age of 8 years and increase skill development that fosters independence in CF care among teens.
