Test for Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) anyone??

  1. Does anyone else have to take this before being selected into an ADN program? What was the minimum score your college accepted? I scored over the minimum in all subjects, math, english, science, and reading. Overall, I scored 80% which is higher than most people I've talked to at the college. The national average is 70%, I don't know if that has any importance. Most all the people I've ran into have had to take it. I don't know. I don't want to get my hopes up, but I would be broken hearted if I weren't able to start the nursing program this fall! If I'm not selected, I hope they would consider me for the LPN program...I hope somebody out there knows what I'm talking about!!
    Thanks, Jenny

    We have to get the highest score possible. The higher the better but at least a 75%. The first time I took it I got an 80% and then got the study guide and worked on it for about a month..my score went up.
    For the other school I am applying to, they look to see if your individual personal percentile is above the 40 percentile and not at the overall score.
