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, its important to remember that its another step to figuring out if nursing school truly is for you." - MedTech read the complete article on preparing for TEAS

As an additional way to assess and assist students in their progression at Labouré, some applicants will be required by Admissions to take the TEAS. These applicants will be given dates that testing will be available at the College.

Labouré only requires applicants to complete the Reading and English components of the TEAS. The test should take no more than two hours to complete. There will be no additional charge to take this test.
