Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS)

Applicants for the Nursing program at Wenatchee Valley College (WVC) are required to take and pass the TEAS® V. This is a multiple-choice assessment of basic academic knowledge in reading, mathematics, science, and English and language usage.

General Information

  • During the 2015-2016 academic year, the test costs $55, plus tax.
  • Pay the fee prior to testing at the Cashier Office.
  • Bring photo ID and payment receipt to the test session.
  • Arrive on time - students who arrive late may be asked to reschedule.
  • The test can take up to four hours.
  • Students may not use calculators.
  • The minimum Adjusted Individual Total Score required to apply has previously been 50% or higher. The Nursing Department is currently deciding whether to raise the cut score for students applying in 2016 or beyond. Please check back later for more details.
  • Scores will be available to students immediately following the test.
  • Qualifying scores are valid for two years. Students who passed the test more than two years before the application deadline will need to re-test.

Study Materials
There are a variety of study materials available. Below are a few recommendations you could consider. We recommend you visit the WVC library to view the available resources before deciding to purchase your own study guide.

Some students also find it helpful to test early. When you take the TEAS, your score printout will list Topics to Review, giving you a clear sense of the areas you need to improve in order to get a higher score.
