Diane Cashman MSN, ARNP, RN-C, CS

Faculty Clinical Advisor

I have worked as an ARNP for over 20 years, and been an RN for 30 years. I have taught at all levels of nursing practice, from ADN to the latest DNP program.  My practice sites have included inpatient hospital care in Orthopedics and Oncology, family practice, nursing home services and house calls.  I currently volunteer my clinical services to the underserved, uninsured and undocumented.  I love that my experience allows me to help others.

In addition, I was a flight attendant for 31 years with a major airline.  I was fortunate to see the world and gain an awareness of the many levels of health care offered in different parts of the world.

What do you love about the UW School of Nursing?

I most appreciate the dedication to learning and research evidenced by all who teach at the School of Nursing.  The desire to help shape leaders of the future is shown each day in the interactions and support of the students as they pursue their own levels of excellence.
