About Barbara

Barbara Slocum is a board certified Women's Health Nurse Practitioner and a full scope Certified Nurse Midwife. While growing up in a military family and living in many different locations, she considers Colorado home.

She graduated from Air Academy High School in Colorado Springs and went on to attend Saint Mary's College in Notre Dame, Indiana, where she received a Bachelor of Science in Biology (with a minor in German). Barbara then completed the Accelerated Nursing Program at the Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

Following graduation, she received a position at the prestigious Washington Hospital Center New Graduate Fellowship Program in high-risk labor and delivery. Upon completion of the fellowship program, she returned to Colorado.

Barbara continued her work in high-risk OB care at various hospitals in Colorado. In 2012, she began work on her Masters of Science in Nursing at Georgetown University. This unique and difficult program provided an expanded focus on care for women and newborns that enabled her to sit for both the Women's Health Nurse Practitioner boards and the Certified Nurse Midwife board examinations. Barbara completed the clinical hours required for her Masters at Lone Tree OB/GYN & Midwives and began working with the practice in 2014. She delivers at Skyridge Medical Center and Castle Rock Adventist Hospital.

Additionally, Barbara VanDersarl Slocum is a published author! She was asked to write a chapter for the book, Pharmacology for Women’s Health while in graduate school. Lone Tree OBGYN is thrilled to announce this book was recognized by the American Journal of Nursing as a Book of the Year and it received the top award in the Maternal-Child category. This is a notable accomplishment in nursing circles. Barbara is hopeful the information in the book will benefit more providers and make a difference for women around the world.

Barbara and her husband John have three children. They enjoy spending time outdoors, running as well as playing and watching sports. Her ultimate goal of OB care is to provide compassionate, quality care that results in a healthy mom and a healthy baby.
