Megan O’Neil


Family Nurse Practitioner Program Director

Assistant Professor

Megan O’Neil earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature in 2009 and quickly decided to return to school for her nursing degree. She then graduated with her BSN from Andrews University in Southwestern Michigan in 2013. After several years of working as a nurse she went back to school and earned her Doctorate of Nursing Practice specializing as a Family Practice Nurse Practitioner from Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions in 2019.

She began her nursing career as a staff nurse at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Illinois on the Stem Cell Transplant and Hematology Oncology floor. After moving to Cody, Wyoming in 2014, she made the change to work in rural, outpatient oncology and infusion where she worked until 2019 when she graduated from NP school. She now is working as a medical oncology and hematology nurse practitioner in Phoenix, Arizona.

Megan has a strong passion for working in oncology and her Doctoral Scholarly Project was a reflection of this. Titled, “Use of the Distress Thermometer in Rural Outpatient Oncology,” Megan implemented a distress screening tool in a rural oncology clinic.

In her free time, Megan enjoys spending time with her husband, Case and her children, Caroline and Jett. They enjoy hiking, road trips and scenic drives.

Her favorite part about her position as the lead Director of Clinical Education for her alma mater, Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions is being apart of the on-site intensive weeks with the hybrid programs.
