“We are excited and fortunate to have Dr. Georgia Vest’s experience and vast knowledge of the nursing education field within our School of Nursing,” said Dr. Joan Rich, vice president, School of Nursing at Rasmussen College. “Dr. Vest will be collaborating with the College’s experienced Southeast region nursing deans in order to continue to develop and improve our first-rate programs. We know Dr. Vest believes in the Rasmussen College mission to offer quality education across our campus locations that provide the caliber of nurses needed in the healthcare field today and tomorrow.

Vest also served as dean of the School of Nursing at Ivy Tech as well as ASN program chair and assistant professor. She started her nursing career as a Home Care coordinator at King’s Daughters’ Hospital in Madison, Ind.

“I am thrilled to join the School of Nursing at Rasmussen College and work with such a high caliber of nursing education professionals across our Florida and Kansas campus locations,” said Vest. “During my time with ACEN, I got the opportunity to visit and evaluate several nursing schools across the country. Rasmussen College is a true leader in nursing education and knows what it takes to graduate quality nurses and positively impact the communities it serves by filling significant employment gaps in the nursing field. I’m committed to improving and growing our nursing locations in the College’s Southeast region so that we can continue to impact the healthcare field for years to come.”
