Hi, I am currently a sophomore, but I plan on graduating high school my junior year. I have always wanted to become a nurse. My mom is a CNA, Restorative Aide, and a Med Aide; and my older sister is also a CNA. I am scheduled to take the CNA class through HCC during my junior year, and I am really excited.
Anyways, I am hesitant about if I should attend Hawkeye Community College or Allen College. I have asked a lot of nurses about which they would choose and they all have said "Allen College is awesome", and "Hawkeye is pretty decent considering it's a community college". However, Allen College is A LOT more expensive than HCC, and I don't want to take out a lot of student loans.
So before I make my ultimate decisions, I want to gather some opinions about HCC, the program, and their instructors. So if anyone has or knows someone who has attended either the LPN or RN program, I would love to hear about their experience with Hawkeye Community College. Thank you in advanced.
