Essential Academic Skills

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. Our department accepts your first TEAS Test score only.  In the event you do not pass the test on your first attempt, you will need to complete remediation and test a second time (with a passing score) within a six month time frame of your first attempt in order for the score to be considered.
