Don’t just prep to pass – prep to earn your highest score.

Passing the TEAS is a key component of getting into nursing and allied health schools, but 30% of qualified applicants are turned away from ADN, Diploma and BSN programs. Since it’s a comprehensive exam, you’ll be tested on four different subject areas, so thorough preparation is crucial. We recommend allowing at least 6 weeks of preparation prior to taking the TEAS. On a tighter schedule? Don’t worry – we have solutions that fit any timeline.
