"Kenosha, WI - I was told that I should not attend this school. I wish that I would have listened to others and went elsewhere. While the NCLEX pass rate is high, the graduation rate is quite low. It is close to impossible to get into contact with anyone in admissions. They ignore all requests to be contacted and once you do get a chance to speak with someone, they are incredibly rude and unprofessional. The academic dean, director of admissions, and the academic counselors do not return phone calls or emails. I understand that they are busy working professionals but their lack of interest in the students makes the entire process very difficult. The administration staff as a whole needs a lesson on customer service skills. The tuition rates are outrageously high. The school is not flexible with payment options. Even with financial aid, the monthly payments that they expect are just not feasible compared to majority of other private nursing programs. However, the teaching staff at this institution is amazing. They are kind, helpful, and very invested in the students educations/careers. The instructors at this institution are quite possibly some of the best that I have encountered while pursuing my degree."

"Be careful - the online program appears to be a scam. An admissions advisor made and appoint with me to talk on the phone. She called 10 minutes late but was able to answer all my questions. She said she’d send me some application steps and would call me the next day at 2pm. I started to apply, but it would not let me select the Nov 25th start date she was pushing on the phone, nor would it let me select the early Jan start date - the earliest start date it showed me was 6 months out. So I stopped the application before signing the enrollment contract with the dates that contradicted what I was told. I sent and email and left two messages and no one returned my cal - it’s Thursday and this woman said I could start Monday but she won’t return my call? And even sketchier - EVERY number I can find online for Herzing (to include the main contact us number and the number for the campuses) rings to this woman. And you get her voicemail. And she never calls back. And, she sent me a form to have my transcripts sent - the school said the fax number on the form doesn’t work. The woman sounded disappointed that I did want to fill out the FASFA info on her link, which now makes me think she was just fishing for my personal info and since I’m not giving it, she’s moved on to scamming someone else. Be careful."

"I thought going to college would make me stand out from others and prepare me for a career but what a load of crap. Two degrees and 3 internships later, all I have to show is $46000 in debt. Every interview has told me I dont have the experience for a job. Career services is a joke. Herzing is a joke. How do I get a refund on this crap? Biggest regret ever."

"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!"
RipOff - 9/18/2019
Degree: Medical Office Administration
Graduation Year: 2009
"My instructor refused to work with me after going through a high risk pregnancy/delivery and before I knew it, I was dropped and now owe the school a fee. They also ripping off someone I know who attends. This school really change over the years and its not right what they are doing to get money."
2019 grad - 9/17/2019
Graduation Year: 2019
"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."

"There are plenty of reviews with people complaining. You have to filter out "the lazy" and that they are just making excuses, compared to those that actually did the work, but still failed. Let me give you a straightforward review. If you are looking to just pass and get a piece of paper (a degree) this may be your school. What do I mean by that? I started Herzing in 2016 for Health Information Management. I was told that their 8 week classes are great! In reality, there are really 7 weeks. As I took the classes during all of 2017, all of 2018 and most of 2019, I was feeling good that the classes were only 7 weeks. Great for working professionals, right!? Boy was I wrong! It will catch up with you! When you attend college, you want an education - not just a piece of paper (maybe you do). When you get to your midpoint or to the end, with Herzing University, you may very well get that degree but you may not LEARNED A THING! There are other online Universities that have longer weeks for each class. Go that route! I have done both. Instead of things being pushed down your throat, you have the time to actually read the material, study, research and learn! Herzing appears to be doing the education industry an injustice and society an injustice when they rush students through, which appears to be so they can prove their graduation rates. I much rather feel that I actually received an education instead of just a degree at the end of the program! The Instructors are hit or miss just like any other University. Most are respected and give you fair grades for effort. So the people on here who just complain or have excuses, probably deserve what they got. If you dedicate the time - you'll do fine. But buyer beware! You may feel like you get rushed through and you may think you'll be enjoying the 7 week courses, but in the end you would have learned NOTHING! What does that mean for you in the long run?? Liability for you and your future employer. Take the time and think about your choice. You may take the faster road, but your much better off focusing in on quality rather than quantity. So why listen to me and my review? After nearly 3 full years at Herzing - I would rather start over again than continue with poor education practices. Herzing University appears to fails society with their education practices and their students."

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2020
"I started out in a medical assistant program in Virginia and I wanted to move back to Atlanta after getting out of the Navy in 2017. The school I was attending was not in Atlanta so I had to find a school that would accept my credits and Herzing university accepted all 56 credits in to the healthcare management program and I’ve made the presidents list and graduate next year. The teachers a helpful and assignments are very reasonable. Please consider them. The only problem I have is that they show more attention to their nursing program and not the rest. Healthcare is a big deal too."

"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."
