I have already been accepted into a nursing program
. I start in the fall and I am registered for 4 classes: Anatomy II,1st Nursing Course, Organic & Biological Chemistry, and Nutrition.
The tests required to get into the nursing program I am in were the following:
-A math test with 20 questions (you MUST get at least 19 correct in order to pass)
-Nelson Denny Reading Test.
-(in addition to other GPA requirements etc...)
I took both tests and passed both, and after I was accepted and registered for my first nursing course, I was told that the TEAS exam was required for the first nursing course.
I was very confused at why I had to take the TEAS after
I had already been accepted into the program. What happens if I do not pass? I called up nursing undergrad admissions and asked what happens if I don't pass the TEAS. I was told the following:
"The TEAS exam is required for all students who are registered for the first nursing course. There is no passing or failing the TEAS. It is only used as a means for the college to determine what they need to focus on more in terms of what students score on the different sections of the test. You do not need to study for the test. Just go in, take it, and that is it."
I am kind of worried about not studying for it because it seems very weird that I have to take the TEAS just as an assessment test? Has anyone ever heard of the TEAS being just an assessment test?
