We are located on a beautiful campus in Waterloo, Iowa. The Waterloo-Cedar Falls metropolitan area combines the diversity of a large city with the friendliness of a small town. Residents value their high quality of life and strive to maintain it. The metro area offers a setting appropriate for nearly every occasion-from shopping and dining at an increasing number of retail areas and restaurants, to leisurely walks along nature trails and exhilarating nights at concerts, shows, or sporting events.

Allen College challenges students with dynamic learning opportunities. Its academic degree programs thrive in an environment that will facilitate student achievement of academic excellence and clinical competence, emphasizing the art of human caring.

Education is defined as a holistic process that involves faculty and students in a commitment to learning with mutual accountability for personal and professional growth. The educational environment provides students a wholesome, intellectually stimulating environment in which caring and respect for all individuals are evident.

Community service provides faculty and students with an opportunity to share knowledge and expertise with others in fulfillment of society's responsibility. The role of the professional includes responsible action related to the needs of society. Research and critical analysis give support and direction to both education and practice. Action related to data generated from the study and research allows change to occur in an orderly fashion.

Allen College is dedicated to preparing you to be a leader in your healthcare field. We are committed to providing an equal opportunity for all students capable of meeting the College's educational obligations and grant without discrimination, all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.

Students can work in several clinical settings and with numerous clients during their years as students at Allen College. As professionals, students are expected to keep confidential information entrusted to them by clients and peers in all clinical settings. Patient information cannot be replicated.

During orientation, students will sign a confidentiality statement. The statement will include information specific to the legal and ethical issues related to confidentiality and will be filed in the students' academic folder at Allen College. If specific institutions request a copy of the statement, it will be duplicated and sent to the institution.

Students are expected to behave professionally in all clinical settings. Students are responsible for their behavior. Examples of unacceptable behaviors include, but are not limited to: breach of confidentiality, unsafe practices, falsification of records or documentation of hours, unexcused absences, or improper/unethical clinical conduct.

Any student giving evidence of clinical misconduct shall be subject to disciplinary action by Allen College. Disciplinary action shall include, but not be limited to, assignment of a failing grade for submitted work and an entire course, reprimand, probation, suspension, or dismissal from the institution.

Specific Allen College programs qualify a student for application for licensure, certification, and sitting for the registry exam in a profession. Successful completion of a program in no way assures that a graduate will successfully pass a licensure, certification, or registry examination by another agency.
