Has anyone attended herzing recently and could possibly give their recent experience with the school. Is it organized? How much is tuition generally? Do they have evening classes? Would you recommend this program?

Nothing special. Expensive.

Will loan you up to attend.

Take prerequisites one at a time at a community college.

When you get your academic chops together take on more courses.

After this, make a decision what you want to do.

Whatever you do, take the academic soft sell advisors with a grain of salt.

In other words you can become a nurse at a fraction of the price if you are patient and diligent to achieve your goal to be a RN.

Go to a site lots of colleges have tried to make never happen because transparency is bad for businees. (collegescorecard.ed.gov)

Here you can compare and contrast a school's graduation and retention rates as well as their relative yearly tuition charges.

You see if you get loaned up and pay too much for the RN, if will never pay off; so always use loans sparingly.

Do it on the cheap at the local CC at least for starters and when you get a job as an RN the fruits of your labor will be yours, not the loan shark's.

I also suggest you go the CC route and get as many prerequisites out of the way as you can. When I am into this program I had some loans not a ton though. I knew that I would have to repay loans myself. No Pell Grant here.

Overall I was pleased with program, it was a very, very tough program. We had 100% pass rate all LPN's and RN's. Most of the students sitting for boards passed with between 75-100 questions. When you leave this program you will be well prepared for NCLEX. Grad 2016 ADN- RN. Passed NCLEX FIRST TIME. There are many nay Sayers about almost every program, there are ups and downs for each nursing school.

That is my 2 cents.
