The biggest mistake you can make on the TEAS is not preparing for the exam.
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. Because 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.Learn How To Prepare
