What are the prerequisites for Herzing nursing programs?

General requirements for our ASN, BSN, and MSN degrees vary across degree programs.

Requirements to enroll in undergraduate degree programs (ASN/ADN, BSN) include a high school diploma or equivalent, and any of the following requirements:

  • Minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5, and meet a minimum composite score on the most current version of the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS). TEAS score must be from within three years of anticipated date of matriculation
  • Minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5, and a minimum score of 21 on the ACT
  • Cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher (no entrance test!)

* Minimum TEAS score varies by campus – contact your campus for more information. Students with 12 or more transferable collegiate credits will be assessed on their collegiate cumulative GPA. Candidates with a GED or HSED will be assessed a 2.5 cumulative GPA.

Enrollment requirements for graduate degree programs (MSN) include holding a current, active and unrestricted license as a registered nurse (RN) and a BSN degree from an accredited program with at least a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale.

Most programs also require an interview with a Herzing admissions advisor before acceptance. Conditional admission may also be available for interested students who are waiting to take the National Council Licensing Exam (NCLEX).  

For specific requirements, choose the program at the campus location that you are most interested in, or get in contact with a local admissions advisor.
