Herzing University MSN Program Clinical Placement Pledge

Your clinical placement is our pledge.

We understand securing clinical placement as part of a post master's certificate nursing program is one of the biggest concerns students face. At Herzing, we offer guidance and support through our step-by-step Clinical Guidance Process to ensure you can get the clinical practice experiences you need.

As a Herzing student, we’ll encourage you to find your own preceptor and clinical sites as there are many benefits to doing so. However, we provide extensive support should you find difficulty along the way. With Herzing, you are never on your own.

Because of our strong relationships with healthcare providers across the U.S. and our comprehensive Clinical Guidance Process, we are confident in our ability to help you find clinical placement. So much so that if you are unable to find a clinical site on your own, we pledge to step in and help you secure clinical placement.*

* Subject to terms and conditions outlined in the enrollment agreement.

Expand Your Advance Practice Nursing Role

As an advance practice nurse, you know where your interests lie and where you want to go with your career. Earning one of our online nursing certificates can help you get there.

For nurses who already hold a MSN, Herzing University’s certificate nursing programs offer you the opportunity to build upon your clinical expertise and become academically eligible for certification in another specialty.


Herzing's nursing certificate programs enroll six times per year and are available exclusively online in full-time and part-time options.  To pursue a nursing post graduate certificate, prospective students must live in a state where Herzing University is authorized to offer the certificate program and must have earned a Master of Science in Nursing degree from a college or university accredited by the U.S. Department of Education. Equivalent foreign credentials will also be considered.

$5,000 Scholarship

Earning financial aid to support the next step in your education IS possible with Herzing University.

Apply for our Nursing Pathway to Success Scholarship and you could be eligible for up to $5,000 in scholarship funding.

Regina Schultz Herzing University Testimonial

Since day one at Herzing University, I have felt so unbelievably comfortable with my instructors. The small class sizes, tutors, the technology in the labs and the one-on-one time with instructors is what really sets Herzing apart from the other schools I considered.
