Megan McClintock, DNP, APN, FNP-C - Instructor
Dr. Megan McClintock has been a nurse for nearly 3 decades. She earned her BSN from Oklahoma Baptist University, her MS in Nursing Education from University of Oklahoma, and her DNP from Colorado Mesa University.
Dr. McClintock started her career as a pediatric oncology floor nurse at Children’s Hospital of Oklahoma. Later in her career, she transitioned into outpatient clinic management, hospital administration, insurance authorization, and then to part-time telephone triage to raise her kids.
She started teaching in 2005. In 2011, Dr. McClintock moved to Colorado, where she continued teaching and ultimately became the undergraduate program chair at Denver School of Nursing. She began pursuing her FNP and DNP in 2015 and transitioned to hospital case management. She completed her FNP in 2018 and has been practicing at a rural primary care clinic in Colorado. Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with leukemia in July 2019, but she underwent a successful bone marrow transplant in October 2019 and is now anxious to get back to work as an FNP as soon as her immune system allows.
Dr. McClintock has been married for 28 years and has two grown daughters — one is a Regional Director for Special Olympics and the other is a vet tech. She also has a very old, little Bichon Frise that sometimes makes an appearance in her video posts. She lives in Colorado, and enjoys walking, hiking, cycling and reading.
