  • Can offer patients and caregivers essential education about managing conditions at home
  • Has the foundation of knowledge and skills necessary to pursue a master’s-level nursing degree in the future

What’s Online and What’s In-Person in the Online BSN?

We make earning your BSN online possible by combining online didactic (lecture) courses with on-site clinical training and experience.

Online

Lecture classes are delivered online asynchronously—this means there’s no set class times, so you can access them whenever it’s convenient for you. This is the format for our general education classes and core nursing classes. You’ll also take part in peer collaboration and practicum supervision via online learning. Because these sessions involve working with others, they need to be completed live. We offer flexible scheduling to help you make these sessions at a time that works for you.

In-Person

Becoming a nurse means learning hands-on skills in simulated and real clinical settings. To ensure you graduate ready to provide care to patients, we require in-person intensives and clinicals.

Intensives

Intensives take place at Herzing University Atlanta and Herzing University Kenosha, or at designated Herzing partner sites. There are three intensives over the course of your program, and you will spend two to four days at each one, practicing and mastering critical nursing skills under the supervision of our nursing faculty.

Clinicals

Clinicals take place at hospitals, clinics and designated partner sites. There are seven courses which require clinical experience hours.

Enrollment Requirements

We require applicants to the online Bachelor of Science in Nursing to be high school graduates who have taken the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS). Minimum requirements to be considered for enrollment include:

Prior education High school diploma or equivalent
Minimum GPAi 2.5
Minimum TEAS score 66

iStudents with 24 or more transferable collegiate credits will be assessed on their collegiate cumulative GPA. Otherwise, the high school GPA will be used.
