The TEAS exam measures basic essential skills in the academic areas of reading, mathematics, science, and English and language use. The objectives assessed are those which nurse educators have deemed most appropriate and relevant to measure entry-level skills and abilities in nursing program applicants. The TEAS exam consists of 170 multiple-choice questions and has been proven to be a statistically significant predictor of early nursing school success.
The LPN Step exam is an insightful pre-admissions tool similar to the NCLEX-PN, and is used to assess an examinees PN knowledge prior to entry into an RN program. Qualified applicants will be invited to take this 150‐item test (which includes 30 unscored items) to assess their comprehension and mastery of basic principles including adult medical-surgical nursing, nursing care of children, management, fundamentals, pharmacology, nutrition, mental health, maternal newborn nursing, priority setting, and the nursing process.
Passing scores (≥62% for the TEAS and ≥65% for the LPN Step) are required before applicants will be fully admitted on a space available basis to the third semester of the nursing program.
