RN Licensure

According to Subrule 2.8(5) nursing courses with a clinical component may not be taken by a person a) who has been denied licensure by the board; b) whose license is currently suspended, surrendered or revoked in any United States jurisdiction; or c) whose license/registration is currently suspended, surrendered or revoked in another country due to disciplinary action.

Students must notify the Office of Enrollment Management if they are in violation of this code.

Out of State Enrollment

Applicants and current students must be aware select states require approval prior to Allen College offering online courses and clinical study in those states. Additionally, a state certification or governing licensing board may also require prior approval for an Allen College student to engage in clinical study within the state. Therefore, Allen College cannot guarantee out-of- state clinical or practicum placement. Allen College also cannot guarantee students maintaining residency in a state other than Iowa will be allowed to enroll in online courses.

Applicants planning to maintain residency in any state other than Iowa, and planning to enroll in an online course or engage in clinical study in any state other than Iowa, should consult an admission counselor prior to applying to Allen College.
