I chose Herzing’s LPN program because their fast track to BSN seemed like a great opportunity. As a former student, I had seen others find success in this program, which inspired me to start my own journey. By becoming an LPN first, I am now eligible for more hands-on patient care, which is exactly what I wanted.
Most of the program was online, and the virtual simulations proved to be most valuable. The simulations varied in what they taught, so there was a broad scope of information covered. It was a great way to learn about a variety of topics and prepare me for my future career!
I simply can't choose what I loved most about my experience! The entire staff at Herzing is extremely helpful and made me feel at home in my studies, and I want to thank them for that.
Aside from the pandemic, the greatest challenge I faced was definitely time management. Ultimately, I grew and learned from this challenge, and now know how to make daily schedules that include homework time as well as family time. It’s a great way to find a balance!
How fast the time goes by! It feels like I just started yesterday, and now it's graduation. Though nursing school is tough and there will be a time that you want to give up, don't! It's all worth it in the end!
