Why Herzing?

You served us—now, we serve you

The first Herzing campus was founded in 1965 by Henry Herzing, a proud veteran of the U.S. Navy. The strength, diligence, and determination he brought from the service into higher education set the standard we work to uphold every day.

We are committed to serving you with the same integrity with which you served your country. Our goal is to provide you with the education and support services you need to help you find the career success you deserve.

We are thrilled to have earned the 2022-2023 Military Friendly® School designation by VIQTORY, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse.® It is Herzing’s second time receiving the recognition, the first coming in 2021.

Military Friendly School
Online + In-person

What's online, and what's in-person?

Online

All didactic (lecture) courses are asynchronous, meaning you can complete them online on your own schedule.

You have flexibility throughout the program to complete general education or core nursing courses at your own pace.

Practicum instructor and peer collaboration requirements will be done via distance learning and offer flexible scheduling for the synchronous, or real-time, course elements.

In-person

Practical, hands-on training remains crucial and required preparation for earning a BSN and becoming a registered nurse. Our curriculum includes:

  • Clinicals. There are eight clinical courses, seven of which include precepted clinical hours. You’ll complete the precepted hours in or near your geographic area. We have a dedicated team to help you find clinical placement.
  • Intensives. You’ll be required to attend three 2-4 day intensives throughout the program at a designated Herzing or partner site. These sessions serve as crucial skill and knowledge checkpoints to ensure you’re on the right track. Intensives will take place at our Kenosha or Atlanta campuses—or a facility associated with a unique clinical partnership.
