• TEAS Entrance Exam
    Students preparing for nursing school find themselves asking the question, “What is the TEAS test?” TEAS, which stands for Test of Essential Academic Skills, is administered through Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI) Nursing Education. The test is a basic aptitude test designed to identify students who would succeed in nursing school and who have the desire to further their ability to think like a nurse. Since the process of applying to nursing school can be very competitive, the TEAS exam is a helpful tool practical nursing programs use to review a potential nursing student’s skills.

    TEAS Entrance Exam Dates 
    There is no passing score for the TEAS exam. Instead, each section is given a composite score, and a score is given for content. Since the test is not pass-fail, your score is used in conjunction with other components of your nursing school application to determine whether you will be accepted into the nursing program.

    The Practical Nursing Program at BVT requires:
    60% in Reading
    50% in Math
    33% in Science
    50% in English
