Nursing is a high-demand but competitive field. Entering the profession starts with nursing school, and admission to nursing school partially depends on your Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) exam score. Many nursing schools use this standardized exam to evaluate a candidate's reading, math, science, and English and language skills.

Our TEAS Prep Series will prepare you for all aspects of the TEAS exam. TEAS Prep 1 focuses on Reading and English and Language Usage. TEAS Prep 2 focuses on Mathematics and Science. You will also learn valuable study skills, practice sample exam questions, and establish a test taking strategy for exam day.
