"From the student advisors through enrollment to financial aid and class work, the work through was awesome. I learnt about Telehealth 5+ years from this school ahead of it coming into play. I am back in 2021 for some more ~ my PMHNP certification. Great 😇 job HU!!!!!!"

"warning you can not work while taking this course. professor z is awesome wiggins, and smythe not sure they should be teachers. they probably where excellent nurses but everyone cant teach. if you are leery about the program the first day remove it. make sure you are clear on the drop add/ dates financial aid wont tell you make sure you read all fine print. the school is misleading and not helpful they will tell you what you want to hear to enroll and then charge you thousands. i was mislead on the program schedule it was noted as an evening program but the second semester required 2 days during the week from 8 am til 5pm doesn't sound like an evening program to me. warning do not enroll in this school if you can not teach yourself !!! t"

"I have been going to this school since the Covid and while I see others saying good things about this school in other states I have to say that their Brookfield/Milwaukee school is anything but great! First their requirement that if you fail two classes and your out of the program is absolutely ridiculous especially given that they cannot do clinical or attend classrooms. Every student isn’t good at virtual Learning so this is something they need to change given the Covid situation. They are teaching things that don’t apply to medicine today but rather old school. The fact that they are not willing to revisit this two fail and out of the program tells me that they are setting many students up for failure. The good thing is that they are not the only school you can attend for nursing. From what I have seen they are teaching them things that doctors do from an examination perspective. I’ve never had an RN do anything except take my vitals when I go for an exam or am in the hospital. Why is that? If you have a choice go somewhere else where the focus really is on what RNs do. This school makes it very hard to graduate and their requirements are definitely not setting the students up for success. And ask yourself why do they have such a low graduation percentage! Steer clear of this institution if you can!"

"Initially when I read the reviews for Herzing, the majority stated, "this school is all about money" and "they will fail you". I went ahead and joined in anyway because of the family feel the campus gave to me (Minneapolis, MN) and they were very willing to accept credits that I've taken >5 years. It was hard for me to accept taking part-time each semester because I had a lot of credits transferring over from my LPN program and Associates degree but I was actually able to manage my life with school. Now I will only do part-time in future education! During the first trimester of the program my son was diagnosed with Leukemia. Even though I was part-time, school seemed impossible but the faculty was very supportive. With that said, they did hold a standard expectation of me and I did my part as a student. To simplify things, this school will fail you if you do not give them 100%. They will give you the best if you show them dedication. Unfortunately, I've watched close colleagues fail and put a lot of blame towards the faculty but a lot of it had to do with their efforts. I also like how they work on professionalism which has shaped me to be on time! One downside I will add is that they're kind of micro-managers. They are in charge of your schedule; you have to get permission to take more or less courses, and they will more than likely make you take less. This is because they want to make sure you do pass! It is a little frustrating though. Overall, I graduated with a 3.4 GPA and passed my NCLEX-RN first try!"

"I want to first start off by saying, I've been to a few schools in my area (Maryland), and I've not been able to complete my degree for lack of convenience (Mom of 2 with a full time job). I didn't think I'd be able to adapt to taking classes online, as I am more of a traditional, in classroom, learner but Herzing U has made learning easy and the courses are really convenient. I've gone further with my education here, than anywhere else I've been. Courses from my previous schools transferred over and because I'm able to complete most of my classes in 8 weeks, I'm graduating in a little more than a year. I would tell anyone considering taking courses online with Herding to definitely do it, it's going to be work, and you're going to need to have some organizational skills but the administrators are supportive, as well as the instructors, if you do the work, you can make the grade that WILL get you to the finish line. (I was not paid for this review, I just really LOVE this school)."

"Hello all! I would like to start out by saying all Herzing campuses may not be created equal. This review is solely upon the Kenosha, WI campus. While I am grateful to have a BSN program in the area where I reside, it comes with a price. And no I don't mean Herzing's core value PRICE model. I have attended other school in pursuit of my nursing degree but ultimately wanted my BSN so I chose to go to Herzing. My experience at Herzing-Kenosha has be horrible. There is a huge lack of communication, requirements and rules change on the drop of a dime at any given moment during your semesters, there are limited resources in hands on learning, lack of direction, a huge faculty turn over rate and faculty member continuously changing roles within the campus, and last be not least clinical placement for students is never guaranteed. There is continuous excuses for the shortcomings of this campus. I feel when you are paying over $700 per credit hour, these types of things are unacceptable. We are told to be grateful for what we are given. I can honestly say, that I graduate in five short months and feel like the most unprepared bachelor trained nurse. Herzing does a good job with organizing events and lunch and learns to raise student moral but this does not make up for the awful, stressful, uncertain experience you will have attending this campus location."

"I graduated in 2017 from the ADN program, after finishing school and unsuccessfully not passing my nursing boards at the first time, I was really upset and mad at my self after 6 months of trying to study on my own and get the courage to take them again. I received an email from the President of the University Madison Campus asking if I was interested in getting help on preparing for my boards which that was amazing. I had never heard of any other school that would do that for any student. I received help from various instructors Professor Ruiz, Professor Lange, Dr Lyles, and they even connected me with a wonderful life coach Deb. Every one of them gave me the courage and the strength to believe in myself and face the biggest exam and be successful. After working with Herzing for a year and making sure I achieved the green light, I was successful this time and PASSED my boards! Everything was because Herzing never gave up on me and they never let me give up on myself. Thank you Jo K RN"

"DON’T believe any of the Positive reviews you see here! This school is a rip off. Professor Ruiz is the worst Nursing Professor ever. More than half of the students in her class are failing and she does not seem to care. She does not care about the students. She does not make her PowerPoints and she barely lecture. She send you the PowerPoints and you’re on your own. If she does not like you, she will not help you. Don’t even waste your time or money. Go to another school!"

"As a stay at home mom my entire life, I knew that I needed to choose a school that would work around my busy schedule. Little did I know how busy my life would become after I enrolled in online classes. 2 weeks after enrollment, I found the 1st of many non-cancerous lumps in my breast. I underwent major surgery and lost a beloved Aunt all within that 1st semester. Not just the staff, but all of my Professors were so understanding and helped me get through every class. Fast forward to my last semester and our adult daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia, my grandfather passed away, my uncle had triple bypass surgery, and my nephew was diagnosed with kidney failure at the age of 13. Once again my professors were understanding and there for me when I needed them to be. I graduated with a GPA of 3.8 and I attribute that to the dedicated instructors that never even once met me in person. Alongside my wonderful supportive family, I did not know there could be such a wonderful community like Herzing. Thank you for everything!"
