The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS)


The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS®) measures basic essential skills in the academic content area domains of reading, mathematics, science and English and language usage. The test is intended for use primarily with adult nursing program applicant populations. The objectives assessed on TEAS® VI are those which nurse educators deemed most appropriate and relevant to measure entry level academic readiness of nursing program applicants.
 
Students who meet the minimum requirements and pre-requisites, and submit all required documents by the February 1 deadline, will be invited to take the required TEAS® VI Exam. You will be individually notified that you are required to take the exam.  As soon as you receive notification the exam is required, please proceed with the steps below; do not wait for the February 1 deadline to schedule the exam.

The TEAS® VI score will be a portion of enrollment consideration, not the entire determinate for acceptance. Please note class competitiveness will change from year to year as the competitiveness of applicants varies.
