    I attend Herzing now, some of your prereqs will transfer, however it will Not shorten your graduation time, it will just allow you to go to school less days a week. Their nursing programs are set to specific lengths. At other universities you could apply your credits and js go straight in to your core classes, herzing doesnt do that. However, it is a good school but very expensive due to it being a private college..plus you have to be a good self teacher at times, but good luck to you all.

    So far I think I like it. The instructors are very knowledgeable and patient with students. Most of the instructors are nurses which is really great. The staff is really great. Great customer service!

    I can not find their NCLEX pass rate. Does anyone attend this campus? I'm interested in their nursing program but ask really nervous.

    @sheilou no dear not fully, still some work going one with no guarantee of accreditation before one graduates. https://www.herzing.edu/about/accreditation

    "...Further, the program is a new applicant program pursuing initial accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE, One Dupont Circle, NW, Suite 530 Washington, DC, 20036-1120, 202-887-6791, www.aacn.nche.edu/ccne-accreditation)."
    Read and understand what comes after, don't get the above statement confused for full accreditation.
    "New applicant status is neither a status of accreditation nor a guarantee that accreditation will be granted. New and current students should not plan on the program having said accreditation at the time they graduate. Some employers may prefer applicants from programs that have CCNE accreditation. Students are advised to consult with employers of preference as to the importance of this accreditation on their hiring decisions."

    Did anyone try to compare Emory to Herzing? Oh well... I will rather go to only Emory (if I choose the private route) or go to any other public university (like GSU, KSU...).

    Emory, Clayton and GSU are CCNE accredited along with Herzing.

    @endowed, I see what you are talking about, sorry. But what does that really mean because when you look at the Georgia state board of nursing, it says initial along with chamberlain and a few other schools. But I know of students that have taken their NCLEX that went to both schools.

    State approval is separate from accreditation from CCNE or ACEN. State approval allows you to test for NCLEX while CCNE/ACEN may affect any post graduate work you seek. Herzing is CCNE accredited as of 9/17/2014. They also currently have initial approval from the Georgia BoN. Initial approval is for new programs. Be weary of programs that only have conditional approval.
