Kasey Jordan, PhD, RN is an Assistant Professor in the College of Nursing where she teaches courses related to population health, policy, and research. Kasey received her BSN from the Medical College of Georgia (now Augusta University), MSN from Duke University with a double major in Nursing and Health Care Leadership and Nursing Education, and PhD in Nursing Science from Vanderbilt University with a focus on health services research. 


Kasey’s research focus is the development and management of health-promoting innovation in community spaces, particularly schools. Previously, Kasey practiced in cardio-thoracic acute care, emergency, and public health settings. While practicing as a public health nurse, she worked primarily with early adolescents in alternative school settings. The experience of working for healthy changes in school communities with a diverse group of students and professionals ultimately inspired her to return to school for a PhD. Her prior research includes an exploration of factors associated with mental health promoting innovation in middle schools and community-engaged scholarship exploring school nurse learning needs related to change leadership. 


Kasey’s current work focuses on innovation in the context of community resilience to disaster. Collaborative projects address topics such as virtual reality approaches to preparing nursing students for disaster response and promoting wellbeing among K12 educators in adverse conditions. She has special expertise in qualitative research methods, particularly in the context of public health services.
