Allen Health Systems, Inc. has always recognized its responsibility to prepare health professionals who will provide quality health care to patients in Northeast Iowa.  Allen Health Systems, Inc., through its Board of Directors, takes pride in supporting an accredited college that provides top programs that are in the forefront of nursing and health sciences education.

Allen Memorial Hospital's involvement in nursing education began in 1925, when the hospital and the diploma school first opened. The first class graduated ten students in 1928. In 1934, the School of Nursing was closed due to the Great Depression. In 1942, the School of Nursing reopened and State Teacher’s College (now known as the University of Northern Iowa ) provided the basic science instruction. The last class from Allen Memorial Hospital School of Nursing graduated in May 1997, ending over 70 years of excellence in nursing diploma education. Allen graduates serve as leaders in all fields of nursing practice in all parts of the United States. Many have been honored for their contribution to the profession and to society.

In 1989, Allen College was incorporated as a subsidiary of Allen Health Systems, Inc., to establish a degree granting institution offering nursing and allied health programs. The Iowa Board of Nursing approved the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program in March 1990. The initial class of students was enrolled during the fall of 1990, with the first nursing course being taught in the spring of 1991 and the first class graduating in May 1994.  Allen College developed agreements with the University of Northern Iowa, Cedar Falls, and Wartburg College, Waverly, to offer the general education and support courses.

In 1958, Allen Memorial Hospital established a certificate program in Radiologic Technology. Graduates of this program are providing radiology services throughout the region and beyond. The Radiologic Technology Certificate Program transferred to Allen College from Allen Memorial Hospital in 1996.  The last class from the certificate program graduated in May 1999.  In 1998, the Associate of Science in Radiography program was initiated with its first graduates in May 2000.

In 1995 Allen Health Systems became an affiliate of the Iowa Health System (IHS).  IHS is the state's largest healthcare system.  Members include Des Moines' Central Iowa Health System (Iowa Methodist Medical Center, Iowa Lutheran Hospital, and Blank Children's Hospital), Cedar Rapids' St. Luke's Hospital, Sioux City's St. Luke's Health System, Dubuque's Finley Hospital , Fort Dodge's Trinity Regional Hospital, Rock Island's Trinity Regional Health System in Iowa and Illinois, Iowa Health Physicians, and other affiliates.

In 1997, the Allen College Board of Trustees changed the name from Allen College of Nursing to Allen College because the allied health program had been added.  A specific track for registered nurses pursuing a baccalaureate degree is offered through distance education.

A Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree program with a family nurse practitioner track began in the fall of 1998.  This program meets the needs of RNs for a locally based graduate program in nursing and the need for additional primary care providers in our region of Iowa.   In the fall of 2001, a Health Education track and a Leadership in Health Care Delivery track were added to the MSN program.  Tracks in acute care nursing and psychiatric-mental health nursing were added in 2007.

The fundamental commitment of Allen College to professional excellence, personal growth, and awareness of the joy of caring has remained steadfast. Always, there is a commitment to the student as an individual with unique ability and potential and a continual commitment to caring and educational excellence. The basic philosophy of fulfillment of responsibility to society remains unchanged.

Our Present

Allen College, based on a tradition of over 75 years of health care education excellence, is 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 every mood, from a leisurely walk along a nature trail to an exhilarating night at a concert.

Allen College is a private, co-educational regionally accredited post-secondary institution categorized by the Carnegie Foundation as a Special Focus Institution. Allen College sponsors four academic degree programs. The Associate of Science in Radiography (ASR) is a two-year degree program. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is offered for pre- and post-licensure students seeking to start or advance a career in professional nursing. The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program offers six tracks: family, acute care, adult/gerontological, and adult psychiatric–mental health nurse practitioner tracks; a nurse educator track; and a nurse leader track for nurses wishing to advance their careers. Students can complete a post-master’s certificate in each of these tracks. In fall 2009, Allen College will admit students to a new Bachelor of Health Science (BHS) degree program that will prepare clinical laboratory scientists and nuclear medical technologists. Students can complete a post-master’s certificate in each of these tracks. An RN to MSN track and a certificate in pain management are also offered.

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 with emphasis on the art of human caring. Exceptional opportunities for classroom and clinical learning are available to the student on the Allen College Campus, at the University of Northern Iowa, Wartburg College, and at the numerous health care facilities in the region.  To provide liberal arts and general education courses, Allen College has agreements with the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls and Wartburg College in Waverly. The bridge between these institutions will maximize student enjoyment and learning opportunities by combining the strengths of our clinical learning component with the traditional college environment and activities.

In the fall of 2007,  Allen College enrolled approximately 450 students, of whom 94% are women.  More than 90% of Allen College' students are enrolled in one of the College’s nursing programs. One-hundred percent of freshmen ranked in the upper 50% of their graduating class.  The average ACT of first-time freshmen in 2006 was 22.6.  The College has graduated more than 2500 graduates who live throughout the united States and abroad.  Allen College employs 36 full and part-time faculty and additional adjunct faculty.

Allen College is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.  Nursing programs are accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).  The radiography program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).

Our Future

Allen College developed a dynamic strategic plan for 2003-2008 by involving over 150 constituents with the college, students, and a large representation from our community.  This plan provides a strong base from which to move forward.
