TEAS- What Is A Passing Score?

  1. I recently decided that I want to pursue Nursing. I'm starting classes in the Fall for my ADN. I realized that I will have to take the TEAS before I'm accepted into the program and on my college's website, it says that my TEAS Program Percentile Rank must be 45 or greater in order to apply. Does anyone know what kind of score I will need to get to achieve a program percentile rank of 45 or greater? I plan on studying as much as possible. I just want to know if anyone could tell me what a passing score would be. I'm not sure how any of this is calculated or if anyone would even be able to help me with this, but any help would be appreciated!

    It seems like all nursing schools have their own requirements for entrance. The school I applied to goes by the overall score. When you get your results, you get an overall score then scores broken down by the 4 categories.

    Good luck!

    So you have to score higher than 55% of the candidates taking the exam. In my program I scored an 85% overall and I was in the 99th percentile. There's no way to accurately tell the score you'll need for your program. I would say just study your butt off and aim for the highest score possible. The test is not difficult at all, just study consistently a month or so before the exam date. If I had to guess I'd say to score within the top 45th percentile you would need a 60% score probably.
