Clinical Nurse Educator - Mother/Baby GYN
Ashley Denker, MSN, RNC-MNN, IBCLC is a clinical nurse educator in the Methodist Women’s Hospital Outreach program. She earned both her Bachelor and Master of Science in nursing from Nebraska Methodist College.
Denker’s interest in maternal newborn nursing began in nursing school and has only grown.
“I loved the maternal newborn clinical and from that point on dreamed of working with mother and baby,” she said. “I love caring for families during the postpartum period in the hospital. I have three daughters of my own and experienced firsthand the impact nurses make during that time, not just on mothers but on the entire family.”
She said obtaining her maternal newborn nursing certification was the catalyst for her to pursue her master’s.
“I have a love for education, both in expanding my own education and in teaching others,” Denker said. “In the Outreach program, I have the privilege of sharing my passion for maternal newborn nursing with my fellow coworkers and nurses from surrounding hospitals.”
In her free time, Denker enjoys taking on DIY projects around her home. She and her husband were featured on the DIY Network show “House Crashers,” where they remodeled their basement in three days. In addition to tackling home improvements, they stay busy with their children and crazy Australian shepherd.
