Herzing University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (211)
I enjoyed working online for my degree. I enjoyed it so much I have returned to complete my Master's Degree in Human Resources. I found easy to use the Blackboard and the online library. I originally went to the local campus to pick up books, however; I found the e-books much easier since I was not always able to make it to campus.
I loved Herzing University. They are very sweet and work with you around your schedule. I have accomplished so much through Herzing, that it is unbelievable. I would recommend this school to everyone who wants a supporting system. I love everything about Herzing.
Where to begin. Started with 47 students. Half of student failed Advanced Pharmacology course.So, You don't move on until you repeat the class. The school charges double the amount that you would pay if you went to a community college. Plus if you fail a course. More money to repeat.It mess with your mind because you spend all your time on 1 class that is made so difficult to pass. I regard wasting my time and money there. I do not recommend this nursing program. I was warned before I took it and I waa told the same thing. I had to see for myself. The person was absolutely correct.
I can tell you that our nursing class started with approximately 55 students. In the end only a few graduated. If you want to make this school nervous, ask them of the students that start the nursing course, what percentage graduate? It is dismal. The program is extremely hard and only a few of us made it all the way through. I was one of them. I would not recommend this school to anyone. If I had it to do over again, I would not attend Herzing University in Orlando (Winter Park, FL). Please do not go to this school. It is a horrible experience. I do not know anyone in my class that would recommend this school to anyone. Please take this warning. Find another option. You will be sorry if you go to Herzing, even if you make it all the way through.
I went to the Orlando campus. The program was tough, but extremely DOABLE. I completed the entire program without repeating a semester and had some amazing professors along the way, including some of them who became professional references as well as mentors I go to still for questions. I graduated with my ASN 12/21/2016 and took NCLEX and became a RN on 2/10/17. I don't think I would have passed in 75 questions on the first try if this wasn't a school that doesn't prepare you for success. What I don't think people realize is that this an ACCELERATED program with 8 week semester. I believe the school gets bad reviews is because people do not realize that this requires dedication, time management, and flexibility. All of these requirements are ALSO involved in healthcare. If you're not prepared for that then it's not the right career path for you. I had a great experience through Herzing. Sure, the school has some ups and down just like any other, but the professors who are in the nursing program are amazing. To anyone that is thinking about going to the Orlando campus, I'd recommend it. Just focus and you will be fine.
I loved the teachers at the Akron, Ohio campus. They were very helpful and informative on the material to prepare me to becoming a nurse. Although the tuition is more than the community college the support by far outweighs what I have seen in other schools. I would recommend this school to anyone interested in becoming a nurse. They help prepare you for the career and the NCLEX.
I am a former student. After looking into a couple of colleges i found this small college in ohio. Everything started out nicely until the second semester. The courses suck. None of your credits can be transferred!!! Half the staff sucks! I owe them money because they give you back to back semester without a break and finial aid can not keep up. Their financial aid people are total d*** ****s. This was my worst experience. All they care about is money. STAY CLEAR OF THEM. On top of that i paid to sit in class on campus just to be on the computer with no actual teacher teaching me, i barely learned anything,
I started taking online courses for the Medical Assistant Course and I still have no degree due to no clinic will take me for my clinical externship due to Herzigova being out of state school. I have taken the same classes over to push back graduation I can no longer do it . So I pay for nothing unfair.
I attended Herzing and earned 44 credits towards my criminal justice degree. Although pricey, I decided to re enroll in classes starting May 1st. I get contacted by an admissions advisor stating that I would have to change my degree without notice. I graduate next year, and they want me to go for my bachelors degree which cost more and will push my graduation back five years. I'm doing what's best for me, but it's all about the money for them. This is not fair because I didn't receive notice, and I'm close to graduating. The advisor then stated that if I want to continue with my associates, then I would have to get a letter from my job stating that if I earned my associates I will not have to take the compass test. Why would any school need a letter from your job? I shouldn't have to go through this for an education. I think I will tell them where they can shove those credits and find another school.
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!
