Cynthia Hathaway
Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, MSN, RN, PMHNP
I received my Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio in 2015 as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. I performed my undergraduate studies at both the University of Washington and Seattle University where I received my BSN from Seattle University in 1997. Prior to becoming a nurse practitioner I practiced as an RN in both neonatal and pediatric intensive care as well as adult trauma. My multiple deployments as an Air Force Flight Nurse have given me a wide range of experience in caring for others who have endured significant physical and mental trauma.
