Well I could tell you what is usually required around here but I need to know which version you took:3,4, or 5?

I took version IV. This is the first semester my school has required it for entrance into the nursing program and there is not a set percentage you must make to be admitted. However, some of the other nursing programs around my area requires at least 80% for admissions and one school that I looked at would only allow you to take it twice. I do not like to admit it but I made a 70%. I froze on the very first section which was reading. My brain just locked up on me. It was weird. I pulled it back together for the rest of the test. I should've and could've done better.

Check with the schools you are applying and see what there TEAS requirements are. I found it on-line at the schools website.

I know a lot of people who did "average" on the TEAS so don't be too hard on yourself...really!


Thank you very much that was comforting :)

I took, what I am assuming is the Teas 4, the one just before this new one, and I got an 80 and got into NS twice! these are the minimuns for my school
