Herzing University announced it will open a new campus in Tampa, Florida, in early 2021. The Tampa campus will offer several nursing programs and pathways that are modeled after the programs at the school’s Orlando campus, which has graduated more than 1,000 nurses since 2006.
The new campus will be at 3632 Queen Palm Drive in Tampa, and Herzing’s 10-year lease allows the school to occupy the entire third floor and part of the first floor of the Sabal Corporate Center building. The more than 30,000-square-foot campus will feature modern classrooms and common areas as well as state-of-the-industry nursing skills labs and simulation learning technology.
Enrollment is open, with general education courses beginning in January and core nursing classes starting later in the year. There is currently no waitlist for any of the nursing programs at Herzing’s Tampa campus.
“Students want to start or advance their nursing careers as soon as possible, and Herzing can help them do that. Our year-round instruction and nursing pathways are designed to meet students wherever they are on their educational journey,” said Jeff Cross, president of Herzing’s Tampa and Orlando campuses.
Programs offered at the Tampa campus will include Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and Practical Nursing (LPN). The school will also offer an accelerated BSN program option for individuals who already hold a non-nursing bachelor’s degree, as well as several bridge program options that provide degree credits for prior training, education and work experience. The bridge program options include:
- Cardiovascular Tech to BSN
- LPN to BSN
- Paramedic to BSN
- Respiratory Therapist to BSN
The baccalaureate degree program in nursing at Herzing University Orlando is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. This accreditation includes the baccalaureate degree program offered at the satellite Herzing University Tampa location.
