For our General Assessment test, we administer the TEAS Computer V version. You may take the TEAS more than once; however, we require that there must be 30 days between each test date.  We will use the test that yields you the highest rating that meets the 30 day wait requirement.

You must take the TEAS assessment test prior to the Nursing Application deadline.

The next dates for TEAS testing will occur in November. These dates will be posted by 11-5-15. These dates will be for students applying for Fall 2016.
