TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills)

The TEAS exam allows nursing programs to test applicants in reading, mathematics, science, and English language and usage. By gauging students' academic readiness, nursing programs are able to admit the best prospective students into their program.

A2 identifies students' academic strengths and areas where improvement may be needed to fully support their academic program success.
