Staff Spotlight – Cynthia Waters, NNP

Cynthia is a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner in the NICU.

I work in the Pediatric Division, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. I have worked in the NICU since 1995 and at the UIHC since 1993. I was also the assistant nurse manager in the NICU for 4 years and worked as a bedside RN for approximately 10 years. I also have a Masters degree in Business with a focus on healthcare.

I like to travel, go to movies, go out to dinner, attend concerts and culinary events.

This is my dream job. I work with an incredible team of doctors and NP’s in the NICU. Working at a teaching hospital keeps me motivated and learning all the time. How can working with babies not be fun, right?

I’m a huge Hawkeye fan, and my favorite book of all time is the Thorn Birds.

Fun fact: On a trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, I trapped porcupines for a local research team.
