What is the TEAS?

"The TEAS is a common pre-admission test used by many nursing programs. 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 ability to think like a nurse. While all examinations can seem a bit daunting, it's important to remember that it's another step to figuring out if nursing school truly is for you." - MedTech

Labouré requires the TEAS for the Associate of Science degrees in Nursing, Respiratory Care, and Radiation Therapy.
