Sophie Cebenko’s thirst for learning and experience goes beyond working toward her nursing degree at DeSales University in Center Valley.
This past summer, she became a certified emergency medical technician (EMT) through Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN)’s George E. Moerkirk Emergency Medicine Institute's EMT program.
Cebenko, of New Tripoli, Lehigh County, is a junior at DeSales with her sights set on working as an emergency room or intensive care unit nurse, with an ultimate goal of becoming a flight nurse. “I thought becoming an EMT would be an awesome tie to that,” she says. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do.” Cebenko says LVHN’s program was “all encompassing” and has given her a great skill set as she begins her nursing career.
