Scholarship Details

Rosaleen Hertl was involved with the School of Nursing in varying capacities, from instructor to acting Dean for over 33 years. Her history with Saint Xavier University begins with her own graduation from Saint Xavier in 1945. Hertl was especially interested in nursing students and was well aware of the stressors they coped with as they proceeded through the program. In her clinical teaching, she focused on safe, humane and compassionate care of patients. This scholarship award is in memory of Hertl and the support she so willingly gave students and patients. This monetary award will continue student support in her name.
