What Is the TEAS?The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is a multiple choice exam taken by students applying to nursing schools. The main purpose of the TEAS test is to assess the abilities of nursing school applicants. This exam encompasses material considered crucial for success in nursing programs as well as in the field itself.
Why Do I Need to Take the TEAS?The TEAS test is becoming increasingly common among nursing schools, as such programs want to admit top candidates who will successfully complete their nursing studies and earn a degree in nursing.
The number of applicants to nursing programs has increased over the last few decades, though the amount of nursing schools has not expanded nearly as much. With nursing becoming a more popular career choice, the field has become more competitive, and nursing programs have become more selective as well. This test is an important tool in this selection process.
Nursing schools want to avoid a situation where a candidate is accepted into a nursing program and then is unsuccessful and quits or is asked to leave. Therefore, only the top applicants are admitted. Such candidates include students who excelled both in high school as well as on the TEAS test, making it very important to perform well on this exam.
