All nursing courses are a combination of General Education requirements, core classes, electives, and clinicals. Some core classes have prerequisites which need to be fulfilled before the course is completed. The exact curriculum and requirements vary by program.

None of our nursing programs may be completed entirely online.

Here’s why: real experience in the field is critical to your success as a nurse. Your clinical experience is vital to becoming qualified for the job and excel immediately in your new career.

Many classes may be completed online, but it is your hands-on clinicals that will provide you with the best experience to prepare you for your career in nursing. Herzing University provides you with the best of both worlds.
