Hi my name is Gerry Elsbernd. I am senior nursing student from Rochester, Minnesota also minoring in Gerontology. I have been active in many services activities including the Christmas party for persons with disabilities and then feed just one. Also, I accepted a nursing internship last summer with the Mayo Clinic in Rochester and my future plans include moving to Des Moines as a staff nurse at mercy medical center.
