Herzing University Reviews - Associate in Nursing
Review of Nursing Associate Degrees
I loved the small class size and how much individual attention we received, The clinical sites were wonderful and the small clinical sizes were great. I am so grateful that our books and scrubs were included in our fees for school so I didn't have to purchase much for school.
Herzing University's associate degree of nursing program is a great program that provides a lot of flexibility for working individuals. This program allowed me to continue working my full time job while also focusing on my goal of finishing nursing school.
I attended Herzing University Birmingham campus.This was one of the worst experience that I have ever had in my life including servicing in the armed forces. You pay all this money to go for a bridge program from lpn to rn. Information Literacy instructor was so nice and really want everyone to pass but pharmacy class was extremely hard to pass. Maybe 20 students passed the class. I don't understand why the school don't realize there is a problem with their program because I looked at other Herzing University Nursing Program and the reviews are the same. I have to pay all this student loan money back . My recommendation as a veteran and as a LPN don't attend Herzing.Use your GI Bill at a different school so you want lose your money.
I loved Herzing University. They are very sweet and work with you around your schedule. I have accomplished so much through Herzing, that it is unbelievable. I would recommend this school to everyone who wants a supporting system. I love everything about Herzing.
Where to begin. Started with 47 students. Half of student failed Advanced Pharmacology course.So, You don't move on until you repeat the class. The school charges double the amount that you would pay if you went to a community college. Plus if you fail a course. More money to repeat.It mess with your mind because you spend all your time on 1 class that is made so difficult to pass. I regard wasting my time and money there. I do not recommend this nursing program. I was warned before I took it and I waa told the same thing. I had to see for myself. The person was absolutely correct.
I can tell you that our nursing class started with approximately 55 students. In the end only a few graduated. If you want to make this school nervous, ask them of the students that start the nursing course, what percentage graduate? It is dismal. The program is extremely hard and only a few of us made it all the way through. I was one of them. I would not recommend this school to anyone. If I had it to do over again, I would not attend Herzing University in Orlando (Winter Park, FL). Please do not go to this school. It is a horrible experience. I do not know anyone in my class that would recommend this school to anyone. Please take this warning. Find another option. You will be sorry if you go to Herzing, even if you make it all the way through.
I went to the Orlando campus. The program was tough, but extremely DOABLE. I completed the entire program without repeating a semester and had some amazing professors along the way, including some of them who became professional references as well as mentors I go to still for questions. I graduated with my ASN 12/21/2016 and took NCLEX and became a RN on 2/10/17. I don't think I would have passed in 75 questions on the first try if this wasn't a school that doesn't prepare you for success. What I don't think people realize is that this an ACCELERATED program with 8 week semester. I believe the school gets bad reviews is because people do not realize that this requires dedication, time management, and flexibility. All of these requirements are ALSO involved in healthcare. If you're not prepared for that then it's not the right career path for you. I had a great experience through Herzing. Sure, the school has some ups and down just like any other, but the professors who are in the nursing program are amazing. To anyone that is thinking about going to the Orlando campus, I'd recommend it. Just focus and you will be fine.
I loved the teachers at the Akron, Ohio campus. They were very helpful and informative on the material to prepare me to becoming a nurse. Although the tuition is more than the community college the support by far outweighs what I have seen in other schools. I would recommend this school to anyone interested in becoming a nurse. They help prepare you for the career and the NCLEX.
PLEASE STAY AWAY from this school. All they care about is the money. They are constantly changing their rules and agreements. I don't understand how this school is still open, it's like a big scam. They purposely fail you, out of 50 students only 3 made it... How is that even possible. if you fail you are practically forced into enrolling for BSN or LPN. The dean of nursing is horrible and does not help you with any issues or concerns you may have. The instructors are paid to fail you, NOT to teach you. If I could give this crappy school a zero, I would.
At first, staff seems friendly when you make contact of becoming a new student at Herzing, next you start, then you can barely get staff/ instructors to take your call unless you at the campus. If you fail two classes, you kicked out the nursing program after all your hardwork, cramming 8 to 9 chapters in 5 days, time away from family. Everybody learns differently, especially those who has been out of school for years. The instructor explains their terms of knowledge as if students has been doing nursing already. They provide a Nclex book, but the instructor doesn't explain it as if their just paid to make notes from the textbook. When it's new, you have to understand the best way you can learn it. Half the students has to repeat a class over, so of course they get the required grade, they don't care to hear anything about their instructors lack of teaching, they state; we offer tutoring, but it's based on the same information taught in class. They stand behind staff 100%, Herzing don't won't to lose their ranking or having to find new instructors, I went to a staff and informed them that I just wasn't getting the class and could they bring another person in to just see what's going wrong, but they act like something wrong with the student. They tell you maybe nursing isn't for you, as if it was a walk in the ball park for them. You ask the instructor a question, they say I'm not sure, look in your book or they go ask another instructor. The power points that's made up is so confusing from the book, you have to just read your book and omit the PowerPoint. You can file an appeal, which staff doesn't mention anything about, your appeal is denied so fast, you wonder did they all sit in the meeting and base the appeal letter off what kind of harm they think you will be to keep them from maintaining their rank. You hear others say their appeal was approved due to not having a job, but your situation is worthless to them when you have seriously ill immediately family.
