Super nervous for the TEAS!!!


Hi everyone,

I am taking the TEAS on April 22nd and I am super nervous!!! This is my last step to get into nursing school and I am putting so much pressure on myself, I know. Can anyone give me any advice on preparing for the big day? I have studied and taken some free online practice tests and seem to be doing well. Also, the program I am attempting to get into requires me to get at least 50th percentile.

Thanks in advance,

Check the TEAS FAQ has excellent advice. Best wishes on the exam.

Take a small break between sections (like between English and Math, for example).

Taking 5 minutes to breathe, tinkle (if needed), and get a drink gives your brain a nice break before focusing on something else.

Good luck!
