"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."

Do not go here - 1/7/2019
Degree: Nursing

"This school only wants your money. They do not care about your life outside of school. I had a parent Ill then pass which caused me to miss some days of class. I finished my final with a 93.5% and was only .7% away from passing. There was no acception. They failed me."

I made it!!! But oh, how frustrating!!! - 6/4/2018
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018
"I recently finished the BSN program at the Orlando campus. First and foremost, it was challenging and I am proud to say that I have finished. Thankfully, securing a job at a local hospital with a degree from this school is easy. Does the school prepare you for the NCLEX and give you the tools you need to be successful? Yes, it does. On the other hand, you have to have thick skin to attend this program. You need thick skin in general to work in the field of nursing so if you are up for a frustrating battle this may be the school for you. I started Herzing in 2015 with my prerequisites and entered the nursing program in 2016. Throughout my course of study the program changed. It was frustrating for me because I recommended the school to others and sadly when they entered the program, the things that I had previously stated to them had changed. I kept my head in the game and continued. I finished the program without having to repeat any courses. The program has a hand full of great professors. Some great ones have recently left as well. The program is also full of professors that are actively working on higher degrees. Sounds good, however, you are not a priority to these professors and your work is not graded in real-time (with the exception of 1 or 2). Despite bad reviews, the bad professors remain and the good ones tend to leave. You will get to know who genuinely cares. Some should be car salesmen because of the song and dance they put on. Remember my comment about thick skin. Just smile and make it out of there. Now that I have finished, let's talk about the customer service. The school prides itself on the P.R.I.C.E. of success model. I'm pretty certain that the P stands for professionalism, the R for respect, and the E for engagement. If the students are made to follow this, then why aren't the professors held to the same standards. As a recent graduate, your emails will go unanswered. Where is the assistance with registering for the NCLEX? It is obvious that there are internal issues going on and the students/recent nursing graduates are suffering. Where is the communication? Where is the customer service? Where is this P.R.I.C.E model that is supposedly followed? I am extremely frustrated as I type this review. I wish it could be better but this school has left a bad taste in my mouth. This is not my first rodeo. I have other degrees under my belt. The corporate office needs to seriously look into what is going on at the Orlando campus. The school has a good reputation at the hospitals and the students get jobs afterwards. However, the amount of unprofessionalism that students have to deal with, while paying good money, is not necessary. So, if you are looking for a nursing program that is challenging, always changing, with kind & caring professors mixed with others that should not be employed, that lacks customer service, a school with poor communication and customer service, but a good shot at getting a job upon graduation, this may be the school for you. If you hear of any other nursing programs in the area that promise a smoother transition into the field of nursing, try there first. The school was convenient for me in terms of distance and I worked full-time for most of the program. I feel happy and blessed to have this degree. Now, if I can only get responses to my emails and get registered for the NCLEX I would be happier. I beg of the corporate office to please do customer service training with the employees of the Orlando campus!!! Do I recommend this school to others? Yes, but with strong reservations."

What color are YOU? - 5/9/2018

"Racism, severely disorganized, unprofessional, higher-ups retaliate against students, lack of resources... I mean the list can go on and on. This school is not worth your time and money. I knew I would be paying a lot to go here, but this school acts just like a fraudulent insurance company; they take all your money and they don't follow through with supplying you with everything you need in order to succeed. Car insurance companies behave like that: you get rear-ended, good luck with getting your insurance company to handle it. It took an act of having a lawyer to get the car insurance to cooperate with me. If you plan to enroll here, please make sure you know of a good educational lawyer in case you need him/her later on. This school is a scam and they will rip you off. They've charged us for software that we aren't even allowed to use. There's already a handful of people looking to sue Herzing University due to negligence and fraud. Steer clear and do not come here. We had great professors and the problem was that if the professors advocated for us students, the Herzing higher-ups would get pissed and retaliate against the professors by firing them. It's the same old s***, different day routine every semester at this campus in Atlanta. They know exactly what they're doing, but they hope we are dumb enough to not realize it. Do you really want to attend a shady school like that? Please run away while you can! RUN!"

"It was hard, I wont say it isnt, but the faculty and staff made it a great experience. I couldnt be more proud and more happy with it. I am so excited to be a graduate, and the clinicals were amazing. I feel like I was really prepared and am now ready to join the force."
