Kasey Bledsoe earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing through the RN to BSN program at Eastern Mennonite University (EMU).

After earning her bachelor’s degree and effortlessly passing a national nursing licensing test (NCLEX), Kasey chose interventional radiology sedation as a specialized field.
