She is currently attending Florida International University, where she will obtain a master’s in science of Nursing with specialization as an Adult Gerontology Nurse Practitioner in July 2019. Marteng is currently one of the six trainees at Florida International University from the Advanced Nursing Education Workforce (ANEW) Traineeship Program. She is doing her Traineeship
