    I am from Wisconsin and at our tech school for the PN you need to have between an 58 to 77% and for the RN you need to meet the beach mark score for each subject so say reading has to be 69% you need that 69 or higher and goes for all each of the subject. Hope that helps.....

    There's no difference in the test itself. The only differences are in how schools use the results.

    All schools, s'far as I've ever heard, require some minimum score; and often, a fairly higher score is needed to get admitted.

    It's common for an LPN program to require a given minimum score, and for an RN program (same school) to require a certain higher score.

    One doesn't "pass" or "fail" the TEAS; one only earns the score needed, or doesn't. And what that score is, may vary among the schools one might be interested in applying to.

    I think the TEAS V test is the same regardless of the program that you apply for. The reason they ask for your program that you are applying to is to help give you a rank with people in the nation and people in the same program that took the test.
