"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."

Jo K - 3/6/2020
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017
"I graduated in 2017 from the ADN program, after finishing school and unsuccessfully not passing my nursing boards at the first time, I was really upset and mad at my self after 6 months of trying to study on my own and get the courage to take them again. I received an email from the President of the University Madison Campus asking if I was interested in getting help on preparing for my boards which that was amazing. I had never heard of any other school that would do that for any student. I received help from various instructors Professor Ruiz, Professor Lange, Dr Lyles, and they even connected me with a wonderful life coach Deb. Every one of them gave me the courage and the strength to believe in myself and face the biggest exam and be successful. After working with Herzing for a year and making sure I achieved the green light, I was successful this time and PASSED my boards! Everything was because Herzing never gave up on me and they never let me give up on myself. Thank you Jo K RN"

"DON’T believe any of the Positive reviews you see here! This school is a rip off. Professor Ruiz is the worst Nursing Professor ever. More than half of the students in her class are failing and she does not seem to care. She does not care about the students. She does not make her PowerPoints and she barely lecture. She send you the PowerPoints and you’re on your own. If she does not like you, she will not help you. Don’t even waste your time or money. Go to another school!"

"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."

"I recently left Herzing and honestly, the nursing program is so disorganized. I felt as if they wanted you to fail. The midterm and final tests were the worst. I feel like they dont prepare you to continue on with the program. Their nursing program wall of graduates were about 10 students. That should tell you something. Paying so much for the school and the ending results became so disappointing. I think they need to change the program completely. I met a lot of great people there and more than half my class dropped out or either failed the term. The program makes it unreal to pass and move forward."

Do not go here - 1/7/2019
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2020
"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."
