The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS)

The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is used as part of the admissions process by Nursing and Allied Health schools nationwide. The TEAS is multiple-choice assessment measuring basic academic preparedness in reading, math, science, English and language usage. The objectives assessed in the test are those that nursing and allied health educators deem most relevant for measuring entry level skills and abilities of program applicants. The test not only predicts the performance of incoming candidates, it also helps educators gain advance knowledge of the strengths and areas needing development of those that are accepted into the program.
