"Do not enroll at this college. They are making poorly implemented changes that are impacting the students in negative ways and profiting from it. It is a private college so your credits will not transfer is you want to leave. Tuition rates have been raised twice in the year and half that I have been enrolled. They are pushing students to online format. I feel stuck and disappointed in the level of education and support I am being given."

"Please stay away from this school. They are terrible people and terrible nursing program. I saw this school from an advertisement and saw they were accepting students and looked great at first. Made the worst decision on my life. Save your money and time and please avoid this school. P.S. curriculum is very very bad, only 3 people graduated it that’s it."

"This school is a disaster, stay away. I regret coming here, the school only wants your money and does not value education. They are predatory and will lie just to get you to enroll, then everything is ripped away. The staff is inadequate at best and then they quit leaving you to fend for yourself. All my classes are moving online because they can't find enough staff. There is no uniformity to online classes and they give a 45-minute Zoom lecture for a 3-hour class. The administration is even worse and they do not honor ADA accommodations or answer any emails that don't pertain to them getting their money. This is a horrible school, please save yourself and go somewhere else."

"Terrible school. Staff only cares about getting paid and not the actual students success. Not worth the money for the lack of resources and learning that gets provided/done. Staff will quit and students are expected to teach themselves but still pay full prices."

"Where to begin. I chose this school over others based on lies sold during enrollment, which is the last time you'll be treated decently during your time at Herzing (think salesmen before and after they're paid). From there, it's a rat race and survival of the fittest where you'll be completely degraded and disrespected by people who neither know what they're doing nor care to make an effort, so they're only defense is to gaslight you for their own failures, ignore you, and flat-out disrespect you. I made it, but not without resentment for this school. If I could do it again, I'd have left before I was in too deep. Or I'd have never started. Anything would've been better than this school."

"0/10 recommend this school. The dean, administration, and faculty don't care about their students. Especially the dean. I wish I would've done my research before signing up for this school. I strongly believe their true colors are going to showed in the next few semesters and their retention is going to drastically decrease. They are business oriented, and don't want to see their students successfully passed. I also believe they delete their FB and google reviews. PLS PLS PLS do yourself a favor and stay away from this school. Try to get in at a local community college for a cheaper price, and were you can have an advocate administration team."

"I entered Herzing University as an RN with my associate degree and graduated with my BSN. I did not know online schools and had not been in a classroom in over 20 years. Herzing University allowed me to learn effectively online and provided me with tutorial help and multiple levels of assistance to continue working toward my goals. They offered a great deal of encouragement to students during discussions and grading. The coursework is sometimes difficult; the APA writing style is significant, as well as PowerPoint assignments, and computer presentations. In addition, you must know what work is due and on what days to complete the tasks. The online setup to check your work makes this possible, and if you check to see what's expected, it is not difficult to abide by the scheduling. The guidance from the admission, career, and financial aid counselors is excellent in determining what you need to graduate. At this university, they don't waste time or money. The online professors all have doctorate degrees and are highly knowledgeable. They encourage and are genuinely interested in helping you succeed in their class. They are personable and professional; I have had no bad experiences. I knew nothing about online classes or the mechanics of navigating courses and had not written a college paper in over 20 years. However, I tried to obtain good grades and did my required work. The online resources are available, with loads of references and people or tutorials to assist you. I graduated with an excellent GPA and on time! I also received a scholarship from Herzing toward my tuition and degree completion. I will likely continue my education at Herzing for my Master of Nursing Acute Geriatric Care Practitioners degree and certification. I am looking forward to this!"

"Really regret choosing this school! Do your research and read the reviews! This school is so unprofessional! It seems like they found their teachers wandering around outside. I've learned nothing the entire time I've been here. Everyone was so nice and helpful when I was signing up for this trap, but now that I started the program, they're rude and useless. As soon as you start classes the tuition will increase. So, just pay the extra money and choose a better school! Talk to current students if you can get an honest opinion of the school. I never leave reviews, but I want people to know my experience before signing up."

"The kenosha location is terrible, don't waste your money. they will drain you off your money and throw you out. after you have completed the nursing requirements they give students F for not passing the predictor which is not require for nursing. the predictor only help students see how they will perform on nclex to get their license. they stop students from graduating because of the predictor and also messed the grade sheet up with F's good luck to people who choose to go to Herzing university. terrible school.. RUN....RUN...RUN.."

"I would not recommend this school to anyone. Especially, for the Kenosha campus, the dean and other administrators always say they are there to help but they basically will tell you, you are on your own. For the Kenosha campus, I have only had one good professor and the others have been zero help. Please save your time and money and go to a better nursing program."

"I dropped from my nursing program because the teachers. Just don't make sense how they teach. Nursing program needs to be on campus not online. This school just made me feel I don't want to be a nurse anymore. What a waste if time and effort. I regret!"

"I am a current student at the Kenosha Campus. I would not recommend this school to anyone. The teachers are good nurses but bad teaches. They do not teach you anything that on the tests you take so you study the wrong information an fail. They call students out in front of class and if you point out mistakes they dont care. You are paying all this money to learn nothing. I am looking into other schools because they do not care about you. They just want your money. Have you looked at the graduation rate. Its low and when you look at the rate of the school when applying for finical aid its low. They keep changing the program and not teaching the students right. Waste of money. I only went to this school since its 3 years instead of 4 but its not worth it"

"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!"

"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 have the best experience with Herzing University. All the staff were very helpful. They have the great program that fitted my schedule and made it possible for me to start and finished. Most of all, the faculty were very patient, knows what you need, and assisted me from day one until I passed NCLEX. They are the best!"

"This is quite possibly the most unorganized institution that I have ever encountered. I explored different options prior to enrolling in the BSN program and I absolutely feel as if I made a horrible decision. I am working on transferring out of this program due to the poor treatment from every member of administration that I have encountered. Now, don't get me wrong, the teaching staff is absolutely amazing. They are clearly dedicated and compassionate members of the healthcare field. However, the admissions staff and student service staff are terrible. I'm assuming this is the exact reason why the turnover for the teaching staff is so high. My recommendation to any prospective students - please go elsewhere."

"This is the worse nursing school. I get it nursing school is not supposed to be easy. But this nursing program in Madison, WI...they have no idea what they are doing. Every semester is different, the Dean of nursing makes up rules each semester. It’s hard to learn in this kind of environment. She’s rude & does not follow the price model. She should be the First to follow the price model. They don’t care about students who pay a lot of money to attend the program. Run!"

"I graduate this month with my BSN from the Orlando campus. This school is indeed challenging. Learning on your own is a must. It’s not like high school where memorization is going to get you through. I have had a positive experience and the professors were amazing. I am now going to attend the masters program which is all online."
