Scholarship Details

Rosaleen Hertel 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. Hertel 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 Hertel and the support she so willingly gave students and patients. This monetary award will continue student support in her name.

Criteria for application:

  1. Provide demonstration of caring and compassionate nursing care in the clinical setting.
  2. Have a minimum nursing and cumulative university GPA of 2.5.
  3. Must be nominated and recommended by School of Nursing faculty.

The recipient will be selected by the Undergraduate Admission, Recognition, and Progression Committee (UGARP) upon nomination by nursing faculty. Scholarship recipients will be notified by mail.

Please Note: All School of Nursing scholarship recipients are expected to "give back" to the School of Nursing upon request by participating in a School of Nursing activity.
