Rosa Mergenthal has been systematically working towards her ultimate goal of becoming an OB/Gyn physician. To do this she initially obtained her certification as a nurse's aide (C.N.A.) and has been working in that capacity in KGH's medical/surgical unit. She also became state-certified as a Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and has volunteered for two years with the Petersburg Fire/EMS department.
Mergenthal's next goal is to
become a Registered Nurse "I decided to become a Registered
Nurse first so that I can pay my way through medical school,"
Mergenthal said, "while gaining invaluable experience and
still helping others." In December 2005 she graduated from
her Certificate in Pre-Nursing Qualifications (CPNQ), accomplishing
the entire program through distance learning. She plans to live
and work in Alaska as an RN after graduating.
