Ms. Hanson-Ernstrom joined the DCN Team in January of 2018 as part of the
OB Simulation team. Her passion for midwifery started in her undergraduate BSN program and led her to work in high risk antepartum,
gynecology, postpartum & newborn nursery and finally to labor and delivery. She has worked in university hospitals across the country
including NYC, the Bay Area in California, Boston & Denver. She graduated with her MS and nurse-midwifery from the University of Colorado
medical campus and has worked in research, at Planned Parenthood, OB/GYN clinic, and Nurse Family Partnership. She took time off after
adopting her infant son from Guatemala to raise him, and his two older sisters and to learn Spanish. She returned to work part time as a
nurse consultant to preschools & child care programs and taught at Red Rocks Community College. Her motto is “Listen to Women” and she
loves working with DCN nursing students!
