The Cincinnati State Foundation has established an endowed scholarship fund to benefit students in its nursing program.

The fund results from a gift from Dr. Leo Munick and Alice Fegelman. The Munick-Fegelman Endowed Nursing Scholarship Fund is the foundation’s first for nursing students. It will build on a previous fund to establish an endowment of approximately $125,000.

Cincinnati State offers a practical nursing program operated with the Great Oaks network, as well as a traditional RN degree program and another designed for those making the LPN to RN transition.

Last year, the pass rate for Cincinnati State nursing graduates taking the NCLEX RN exam for the first time was 85.8 percent – above the mark for associate degree programs nationwide (82 percent), the overall national rate (84.5 percent) and the Ohio average (81.2 percent).
