In my time here at the Allen School, I have received nothing but support and guidance in my studies and career path that has only made me a stronger and more confident individual. This place and its staff made me enjoy every moment of learning, and fully prepared me to excel in the real world. I am forever grateful for all the Allen School has done for me.
It is not every day I get the opportunity to express the way I feel, so here goes. As a child growing up, there was something deep down inside of me telling me that caring for people would make me happy and right there and then, it dawned on me that being a doctor would be my closest point of making that happiness come true. I know I’m not there yet, but the sky is the limit for me.It is not easy for a working mom and wife to go back to school and pass all of her classes with honors, but I did it. I did it with the strength of my Heavenly Father and family as my support and of course the teachers, doctors, and staff that taught me everything I know here at the Allen School of Health Sciences – hats off to you guys. And this is for anyone reading this and is thinking about joining the Allen Family – go right ahead, make that step, and you will be glad you did so that you too can have your success story and shine for all to see.
At the Allen School of Health Sciences, I wanted a brand new start for a career. This experience has been an amazing journey and I am happy I had supportive staff and classmates to help me through this wonderful and also stressful and liberating time. The Allen School worked with me and helped me become a better person. “Always aim for the stars” – always put yourself in a better position than where you were before.
Just about one year ago, Alicia Campbell, Phoenix Campus Sr. Enrollment Advisor was driving back from lunch here in the local Phoenix area. She saw a young lady walking in a McDonald’s uniform on the sidewalk. She immediately pulled a U-turn and went back and asked her from her car window if she wanted to change her life and stop working fast food. After a brief conversation she exchanged information with the now interested young lady, and set up a time to come in for an interview at the campus. Not soon after that, the student enrolled into the Allen School medical assistant program as a brand new student. Today, that same student walked back into our campus to pick up her MA certificate after a/ready being hired by her internship site at a pediatric endocrinology clinic nearby. Whether you work in online admissions or campus admissions, having the internal desire to truly help people is what really makes all the difference in the world. This is what referrals and personally developed leads are all about.When was the last time we pulled a you turn in our car to talk to a perfect stranger, or talked to the stranger next to us on the bus or subway on your long commute to work? Opportunities to change a life are often all around us, we just need to make the effort to come out of our comfort zone and help. Thank you to Alicia Campbell for all that you do. Let’s all take a page out of Alicia’s playbook to try to have a story like this we can share too! Keep your eyes open when you are out and about and always have your business cards on you!You never know who’s life you may have the chance to change forever.
My training at the Allen School was a great experience, being that I had previous training at another school. I really loved my instructors, and I learned a lot. Going on internship, I was prepared to put all my training and skills to the test. I can say that my 11 week experience on-site taught me all about staying professional and staying focused. I am happy with the experience I’ve had at the Allen School. I know that I am well prepared to go out and put all my skills into helping people every day.
Honestly, I can say that my time at the Allen School has been an amazing experience. The professors, staff, and faculty members support you in every way possible. I’ve had some pretty tough times, obstacles, and struggles, but I rose above everything and finished. I feel very accomplished. I’m not going to stop! I’m going to keep moving forward. I would like to especially thank Ms. Townsend and Martha for everything.
Since I was away from the medical field for over 15 years, I really needed to brush up on my terminology and learn the latest technology that has taken over the medical field while I was gone. I feel much better now to find a job than I did before taking the course. I have never been on online classes before but I readily adapted to it and felt that I was in the classroom with my classmates and teacher. A lot of the students who were in almost all my classes have reached out and we are friends on Facebook so we can keep in touch. Even some of the teachers asked for me to keep in touch with them.It did take commitment and responsibility to attend the classes every day Monday thru Friday for 5 hours an evening but I was able to stay focused and on task. I found it much easier to manage while working part time than full time but either way if you want something bad enough you will do it. Keep your eye on the prize and dedicate the time to get through your classes as the end result is worth it. I already have prospective offers for jobs after they have seen my resume with Allen School listed. I am in the process of trying for a Collection job through a Medical Placement Agency with another opportunity to do billing. They are looking forward to setting up an interview with me so I can only hope this becomes a full time position. I would be working for a 3rd party entity that works with different Hospitals and Doctors offices in the area. Since it is not a done deal yet, I will keep you posted if I should be hired and if not, I’ll let you know when I do become hired. Right now I am working for another Temp Agency and I have an assignment that ends next week July 29th. I will be ready to find a full time job after that.I look forward to receiving my certificate in 6 weeks and Thank you and your staff for all you have done to get me to this end result.
All the instructors at Allen School have shown their capability in their own special field of education. But my motivator has been Professor Littlejohn. Besides educating her class she makes it so much fun in helping the students be engaged actively in the class. She has a lot of patience in dealing with our different personalities as well as respecting us as individuals – as adults not as children. She does not belittle us, not even in her tone of voice. I have the utmost respect for her and thank her for acknowledging the diversity in all of us. I hope for be privileged to attend another of her classes.Mrs. Diana Wilson also was very understanding and gave us room to express ourselves during class. Just like a regular school class. Both teachers made me look forward to the next day in class. They helped me not to give up but to stick with the program.Thanks to everyone at Allen School for making it possible to enroll in this program. From the interviewer to the in-take, the technicians & Administrators and everyone who had a part in helping me with my enrollment and participation at the Allen School.
It all started when I made the first call and spoke to Jennifer, the way she spoke made me feel empowered and even more motivated to start school so I knew then this was the school for me, after starting class I hit a really rough time in my life I lost my mother and brother in over a three week period, during this time I wanted to give up, but I informed the school but thanks to Ronnie Banks, Sydney Bradford, my instructors Candace, and Diana, they were all supportive and said I’m almost done with the period of class, that they knew I could do it, that I was strong and yet determined to continue on with school and I didn’t back out of class after that so everyone at Allen School has been there and I’m forever grateful. Thanks Allen School…
