Essential Academic Skills
Effective Fall 2007, all ADN, VN-RN, and VN students must pass the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS).
This is a diagnostic test that covers basic Math, Reading, and Science. Students who fail to achieve a passing score must complete additional pre-nursing course work as directed by the nursing department. Students may prepare for this test by going to the ATI testing site (http://www.atitesting.com/) and then go to ASSESSMENTS; go to Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS). The TEAS test will be given by the nursing faculty prior to starting the nursing program at a time set by the nursing department. To be considered for acceptance into the ADN Nursing Program, the student is permitted to take the TEAS Test a maximum of TWICE to achieve the accepted score of 62 or higher.
