1. I've been reading this forum for only a few weeks now, and TEAS has come up a few times, but I have no clue what it is.

    Could someone fill me in please??

    I'm applying for nursing schools soon, so I hope its not one more thing to add to a mile long list of things to do before I apply.

    Hi gudiarani,
    The teas is an entrance test required by some nursing schools. It is a test of essential academic skills. There are many different tests so you should check with your school to see if they require you to take one or not. One school I researched required the NLN, one required no entrance testing and one required the teas.

    Good Luck!!!

    teas stand for "test of essential academic skills". here is the home page of the organization that writes and administrates this test. http://www.atitesting.com/productinfo/teas.aspx the test covers four general areas: math, reading, english and science.
    • math covers whole numbers, metric conversion, fractions, decimals, algebraic equations, percentages, and ratio/proportion
    • reading covers paragraph comprehension, passage comprehension, and inferences/conclusions
    • english covers knowledge of punctuation, grammar, sentence structure, contextual words and spelling
    • science covers science reasoning, science knowledge, biology, chemistry, anatomy and physiology, basic physical principles and general science
    there is an online store at their website where they have an official study guide you can purchase for $34.95 to prepare for this test. here is the link http://www.atitesting.com/onlinestor...61&isproduct=1

    here is one website i know of that has some free information about the teas. while they are trying to sell their own study guide, there is some free information there about the test.
