Allen College Reviews
I am happy to be a student at Allen, I feel that we learn "more" than what other colleges have to offer (just by working with non-bsn RN's)... The first and second semesters were difficult, but Allen does offer excellent support, and your instructors are more than willing to individually help you out, all you gotta do is reach out and ask!! (push push push that communication!!!) I wish we had some more vending machines, but, Allen does cater for free lunches for us often, and the SNA group and faculty are pretty awesome with setting up snack tables and little activities to relieve stress during mid-terms and finals! Being a private college increases the chance for scholarships, Allen also offers clubs to join which provide scholarships as well. Overall, I love it here at Allen, and I will be proud to add my Allen College BSN-RN degree achievement to my resume soon :)
I think that Allen has some good teachers that know how to set the students up for success in the future. The clinicals are hard to get a lot of different experience out because the bigger problems or situations go to the bigger hospitals. The small class sizes helps you to create good relationships with the students as well as the teachers. This is good because then you can ask them questions as well as use them as references on resumes. There isn't a cafeteria which does suck. There are a few local fast food places in walking distances.
They continually add extra fees such as Typhon or security systems that they take down eventually because no one knows how to run them. The whole experience seemed like the staff could care less about their students and were insanely unorganized. Don't call the school between 11:30 and 1:00 pm because no one will answer. There's better and cheaper schools in the Iowa area.
