Herzing University Reviews - Bachelor's in Nursing
Review of Nursing Bachelors Degrees
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.
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.
This school is great. So happy for my degree and love that it is all year round school. Nursing staff was amazing and made a huge impact on my choice is which field I want to go into. I like the small classroom sizes and getting to know your classmates and staff better.
My college and degree program well prepared me for my career. My instructors were tough on me when they needed to be, this well prepared me for the pressure I will feel when I am a Registered Nurse. This field of study was very difficult but my instructors helped make it easier
I enjoyed the program that I attended for several different reasons; the size of the classrooms was the biggest factor for me. I have found through attending several universities in the past that I do not do well with a large class size. Herzing was the opposite of that. Each class size was small and personal and it allowed me the chance to interact with my professors without any embarrassment of asking a "dumb question." I felt compelled to learn and enhance my education to my absolute fullest while at Herzing and I know that I will carry that with me into my future career as a nurse.
It was a good program. I think the program and the clinical experiences will help me in my career as a nurse. I have met valuable friends that will last a lifetime. I am considering returning for my masters degree. My goal is to become a Nurse Practitioner.
family like setting that offers an education tailored to meet your needs. Herzing university makes every dream possible with its trained staff all help required for success is in place. THERE IA AVAILABLE TUTORSHIP FOR ANYONE WHO RRQUIRES MORE HELP TO MAKE IT THROUGH
