"When I first started at Herzing Kenosha there were a lot of organizational issues. We had professors quoting half way through the semester and there really wasn't any structure. I've noticed that there have been a lot of improvements in this past year. I'm sure that within the next few semesters things will be more structured and students won't have to suffer for the lack or organization within the staff. There are some great professors at this school who really love to teach and you can tell it's their passion! Overall, it's a good school if you put in a lot of effort and take responsibility for your own education and study."

"I love that Herzing has small class sizes, the professors and staff are dedicated to your success and will do whatever necessary to help you graduate. I also like getting reminder emails that a blackboard post is due from my online adviser because life happens and there are some weeks it gets away from you. Another thing about Herzing that's phenomenal is they extend a military discount to spouses, ANY amount helps to pay for school, their financing is super flexible, and they accept federal student aid. Many of the pre-requisite classes can be done online or on campus which is huge for returning adults with families, I like being able to study when everyone is in bed or even at work in downtime. Hands down I couldn't be happier with Herzing!"

"As an adult in her 40's, going back to school to an accelerated program was number one priority. I didn't need or want the 4 year bachelor degree experience. I was there to reach my goal, with honors, and get the degree that would allow me to work for the career I have always wanted. I now have this career in cardiovascular research, and I enjoy coming to work, everyday. Attend classes, study diligently and with purpose, manage your time and you will find Herzing University to be a good idea!"

"I am loving Herzing and I am confident that this will be where I finish and graduate! I love being able to take easy classes be online and take harder ones in person and get extra help. Herzing is very hands on with a small classroom setting which makes it easy for students to get in touch with teachers and receive one on one help if needed. I would definitely recommend Herzing to any college student out there. The teachers and faculty show a great interest in you and take the time to make sure you succeed."

"Herzing is honestly the best decision I have made when it comes to college. The teachers and staff, from the moment you show interest in the university, show immense interest in you. Classes are small, which are super important when it comes to one on one help with teachers. Teachers want you to succeed in class and will help in any way we need. I am fully assured that I will be prepared over and beyond when I graduate as a nurse."

"Herzing University has improved so much in the two years I have been a part of the nursing program. Getting into classes and starting my degree was an easy process. The location I attend is conveniently located about 25 minutes from my house, and the instructors give their students a lot of attention because of the small class sizes. The instructors are there to help and make your nursing school experience as smooth as possible and really want each person to succeed. I really appreciate my time at Herzing and love the fact that they get each student into clinicals without students having to stress about where they can go and what to do."

"This school was willing to work with me, even when I had credits from anther school, the staff was amazing and wonderful and they put me on the right path to finish my BSN. I have notice that they have work shops to help the individual with the APA format and this is truly a blessing."

"The nursing program at the time I was going 2011-2012 was not structured effectively. The goal and structure of a nursing program should not only provide you guidance and appropriate resources (coloring the anatomy isn't adult aged appropriate) to pass, but further prepare students to pass NCLEX! Too many changes of faculty and inexperienced teachers, teaching a brand new program. Not worth the money. Education is supposed to be an investment. I'm having a more positive learning experience at the community college that is challenging and evolving my critical thinking skills needed to be a nurse, while preparing me to pass NCLEX with success! I'm so glad I listened to my gut...it felt like a scam!"

Beyond Disappointed - 8/12/2016

"Please be aware before enrolling in this university. After being in the BSN program for two years I decided to transfer because of multiple reasons. The first being that the school is no longer accepting nursing students because they are in the preliminary stages of losing their accreditation due to low nclex scores. These scores are probable due to my other reasons for leaving, such as the constant turnover of both instructors and administration. This makes it very difficult to develop relationships and receive timely and accurate help with any issue you may have arise. The nursing program overall is poorly structured and many of the instructors clash on many issues. I realize the longer I go with this may just seem like I am bashing the school. I am not bashing the entire school, simply the nursing program. The disorganization that rules the nursing program will hinder your experience and in my opinion as well as many of my fellow nurses who have left the program to finish at other schools, we are all in agreement that it was in our best interests to move away from Herzing."

"I am currently in my 2nd semester at Herzing. I am strongly leaning towards leaving and pursuing my BSN elsewhere. The program is unorganized, it's ridiculous. I've read numerous bad reviews, however decided to give the school a chance. My initial semester was a total nightmare! Not all but some instructors weren't helpful. They use ATI in hopes to prep students for the NCLEX early on but materials covered on ATI show up when not even discussed in class. The school is all over the place. There is a major deficit in resources for students, lack of tutors readily on hand, PRICE model that is rarely displayed by staff and instructors, and most of all, huge turn around in teachers. The good ones leave. Why can't Herzing keep their instructors? Why are their graduation rates so low? Perhaps the school just wants our money and do not care about their he education and we'll being of their students. My education here has been a joke. The amount of tuition that Herzing charges and they can't even offer a proper education. I worked my butt off just to past and barley did so because my instructor was too busy with her life that she couldn't commit to teaching to the best of her abilities; so I struggled along with my whole entire cohort. They blame students when we fail yet refuse to look at the statistics. When half the class or more fails, that should tell you something! When half the cohort fails a semester, that should definitely put up red flags! I advise anyone to move along if they come across this school. Herzing lacks integrity. They do not care about their students. They do not care about proper education. Sadly I have to walk away from this situation, thousands of dollars invested already, and will be looking into other colleges. Don't let the short time frame and no wait list draw you in. Take your time and most importantly, go to a school that will offer you a great education. One where you definitely don't have to resort to teaching yourself the materials. Herzing will not properly prepare their Nursing students to succeed. Run. Run away as fast as you can!"
