My school just switched to this . . . I had to take the TEAS and I hope I got in this year because otherwise I'll have to take the HESI also! It looks like there isn't any science on the HESI . . . which is kind of nice, that was my worst score on the TEAS.

I had to take the NLN RN pre-entrance exam and pass with a minimun 50% percentile in order to be eligible to apply. We also take HESI as an exit exam and must get a 900 for them to release our transcripts and take the boards. You get 3 chances if not, then you repeat a few semesters.

I am soon to take it and beyond terrified.

I just found out we will need the TEAS but not until we are accepted. Can you give me any info on that test.

I guess . . . I don't know anything about it, they just announced that it's required now for pre-entrance. Sounds scary the way y'all are talking about it! I hope I get in this year so I don't have to take it!

The TEAS (what I took) is the Test for Essential Academic Skills from ATI institute. You can look them up online and they have a practice test which is somewhat helpful; they also have a study guide. The TEAS covers Science, Math, and English broken down into two sections but I forget what they are . . . maybe it's English and Reading . . . something like that. I didn't find the test that difficult, but I did study beforehand. The science was the hardest. FWIW I thought the study guide was much harder than the actual test.

We were required to take the HESI with a score of no less than 75%. There were eight parts to the test: Biology, A&P, Grammar, Spelling, Vocabulary, Math, and a couple of other parts that had to do with finding out what kind of learner you are. It was not as bad as I had expected it to be. During the program, we will have to pass another HESI before we can move forward. I believe that we have two chances to take the test and pass before advancing. I just got my letter of acceptance into the ADN program offered at Grayson County College in north Texas! Yay!!!!! Class of 2009, baby!!!!!!

I took the HESI A2 a few weeks ago... the entrance test. It's not bad at all. The study guide you can buy covers it all pretty well. We did math, reading, A&P, personality, and learning styles. I scored 95% composite on it.
