How did the TEAS explode into what it is?

Has 4 years experience.

When I started nursing school in 2008, we took the TEAS the first week of school. We had no clue what it was or anything, and it was just like an 8th grade level or high school level test. Sort of like the ACT. But 99% of my class scored 80% or above. We didn't have any study guides or anything like that...but now it seems like people study for this test like the NCLEX. I haven't taken the time to read, but has it changed dramatically in the past few years or something? When we took it, it was really not a big deal or anything.

I never took it in '08 but it seems like its the same thing. I wondered how so many people failed this test.. it really is junior high material!!! Not to belittle anyone but c'mon, this information should be a GIVEN anyone wanting to enter a program like this

Well, I took the TEAS Version V last month and failed with a 63.4% I have a 4.0 in all of my math and science pre-reqs, but have a 3.83 overall GPA (stupid English-I'm not much of an essay writer). I have been asked by all of my college professors to be a peer tutor. I don't know why I did so bad on the TEAS, but I do know I am horrible at timed tests. I guess I'm just not smart enough to become a nurse after all.

you will be fine! u seem pretty smart according to your gpa the teas is something you have to prepare yourself for mostly touch up an remember these things that you have forgotten over the years. plenty people take it and do badly to take it again and past. im pretty sure you can just keep a positive attitude and you will be ok :)
