Rose Marie Nesbit, B.S. ’57

Having graduated from the school with highest honors, Nesbit went on to work as a public health nurse for the Los Angeles County Health Department in Inglewood, and later at the Santa Monica Health Center assisting the assistant district health officer in providing immunizations for parochial school children throughout Los Angeles County. Well after Nesbit’s formal nursing career ended, she has continued to promote the profession through her support of the school. Nesbit was chair of the Board of Advisors under Dean Ada Lindsey and Dean Marie Cowan. With her husband, Dr. Richard Nesbit, she was active on a committee that successfully raised funds to establish the Lulu Wolf Hassenplug Endowed Chair in honor of the school’s founding dean.
