Megan Urban, MSN RN CPNPPediatric Nurse Practitioner

Megan Urban has been with the Oncology department at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago since 2003. She began her career 15 years ago as an inpatient RN on the Hematology/Oncology/Stem Cell Transplant unit. After completing her Master's in 2008, she transitioned to her current role as the Pediatric Nursing Practitioner caring for oncology patients on phase I/II clinical trials.

Megan also specializes in Neuro-Oncology. Her experience in early phase clinical trials among children with brain tumors lead Megan to identify a need for greater nursing collaboration for this unique patient population. Thus, she co-founded the Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium (PBTC) Nursing Committee in 2013 and serves as the chair. Megan feels privileged to guide patients and their families through a time they need it most while prioritizing their quality of life. She enjoys spending time with her husband and 3 young children. They spend their free time outdoors and traveling the world, opening their children's eyes to new experiences.
