"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."

"I started at Herzing doing the transition program from LPN to RN program. This happened to be the most awful experience ever. The test are computer generated and does not cover the information that is taught in class. They have minimal clinical sites for the program, the director of the program encourages students that don't pass to do the Bachelor program which cost even more money. According to FAFSA the retention rate and graduation rate is only 43 and 36%. If you want a school that is geared towards learning with honest academic staff, Herzing is not the school. I am so thankful that I transferred to a college with morals and a better academic schedule with staff that knows how to teach. The program that I'm in at a different school is not a walk in the park, but I study and I am passing my classes getting what I feel is a proper education. We have a lot more clinical sites and get a chance to see the different aspects of learning. At Herzing we spent a lot of time in the simulation lab doing a lot of nothing. I honestly believe it's only a matter of time before the government realize the schemes the school is pulling to over charge students by intentionally failing students and trying to coerce them into doing the bachelor's program in order for the school to receive more money in financial aid."

"The WORST EXPERIENCE EVER! Went into Nursing 1 excited and eager to learn. I did well on each test (by never sleeping and drilling the concept in my mind myself) the teachers have no idea if you ask them a question.CRAZY!!!! I passed the weekly test and the midterm (barely) and got to the final and failed! I had a B in the class before the final. Some had A's before the final and they failed!!!! 20 students failed!!! I wouldn't recommend this school to my enemy or the devil. One of the cohorts are getting ready for an graduation and only 7 nursing students are graduating!!!! Started out 45. SMH Its so sad that schools can do this. I was so devastated over failing that I attempted to commit suicide(something I never tried before in my life)I was in shock that I wasn't going on to Nursing 2. I'm glad my family found me in time and I'm here to share my experience with you. If I only reach one person, its good enough for me. I don't understand how the professors/employees can work for an school that sets students up for failure and in extreme debt and sleep well at night. Please for the sake of sanity and peace for yourself and loved ones, with tears in my eyes, don't go to this school. I wish I can do more than write this to you. Don't be drawn by the accelerated bull crap. Take your time, go to a state school. ANY SCHOOL JUST NOT THIS ONE."

"I don't know about other campuses, but Herzing Orlando's nursing program is awful. As a previous reviewer stated, they do not have their program together and will hold you up from progression during the last semester. They graduate VERY few students. The big incentive to earn your nursing degree at Herzing is the short amount of time in which it can be done. Please take into consideration, however, that one failing class will put you behind at least 4 months (you have to appeal, which can not be done in time for the next semester to start). Then put into perspective that my cohort started with 60 people and graduated 2 in the originally stated time. I do recommend Herzing for your prereqs. They are regionally accredited and you can knock out tons of prereqs in a short amount of time. With decent study skills, those classes are actually normal and doable. Also, watch your financial aid statements carefully. They have a tendency to take more money out than necessary- aka they will use your Florida prepaid instead of other scholarships, etc etc. Watch your statements, ask for clarification if they don't make sense, and don't let them talk you around in circles."

"The Orlando campus does not have it's nursing program together. Do not waste your money going here. In normal nursing programs you are to take practicum and take an exam which means you finished, graduated, and are ready to be licensed. This school added an additional course to block graduation for those they think will bring down their NCLEX passing rate. What this means to you, the student is, you finished the entire program only to be held hostage until you pass this class which are randomized exams or get dismissed. This means you have taken out student loans and paid extra cash for this class and are still not able to take your NCLEXRN. This school only graduates 20 students per YEAR. All other programs are 20 students per semester and still have higher pass rates than this school. This means by instituting this extra course that they do not have faith in their own program they have built. You will be stuck with a large debt without a degree or chance to even prove you have the minimal competency to pass the NCLEX."

"I felt that the nursing program was intense and prepared me to practice exceptionally as an entry level nurse. I attended the Akron campus and the instructors there are phenomenal! They really do care about the students and their success. I earned my nursing degree in 5 semesters and it has changed my life for the better!"
