Test of 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. The TEAS test will be given by a test proctor prior to starting the nursing program at a time set by the Nursing Department. 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) a minimum of  a six months after  your first attempt in order for the score to be considered.  Proof of remediation, as well as proof of first and second test attempts must be attached to the program application.
