Trina Korbo graduated from Coronach High School in 2000 and has recently moved back to the community to be the Public Health Nurse.
After high school graduation, Korbo, who is the daughter of Leroy and Julie McGillicky of Coronach, completed her two years of Arts and Science at the University of Saskatchewan. She then completed the Nursing Education Program of Saskatchewan (NEPS). In 2006, she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, making her a Degree Nurse and Registered Nurse.
Korbo began work in the Regina/Qu’Appelle Health Region in Medicine/Oncology. For the past 3 1/2 years she has worked in Endoscopy at the General Acute Out Patient Department, along with some casual teaching in the NEPS program.
Trina married Jason Korbo in 2007. Jason works at the mine and recently took over the family farm with his brother Darren. After many years of living apart, the couple decided it was time to live and work in the same community so Trina accepted the permanent part-time position in the area. “I’m excited! It’s going to be a change from the city, but it will be good for Jason and me. We’ve been living apart for 11 years, so it’s time,” said Trina.
Trina is beginning her new position with 6 weeks of orientation and learning the ropes as a Public Health Nurse. The first step is to study 14 modules of the Public Health of Canada’s Immunization program and then write a written and oral exam with Dr. Hudson from the Sun Country Health Region.
Once Trina is ready, she will work together with one other health nurse in the area to provide community health clinics, baby clinics, post-natal visits, school aged vaccinations and flu clinics.
She is looking forward to her new position, “ It’s a different area , completely new! I am looking forward to it, lots to learn,” said Trina.
“I’m excited to come home. It will be neat to meet the community members. I’m looking forward to working with the kids and watching them grow from babies,” she concluded.
