Your clinical placement is our pledge.

We understand securing clinical placement is one of the biggest concerns MSN students face.  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 step-by-step 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.)
