Standardized Tests

TEAS Test Resources

TEAS Study Guides and Practice Tests:


All prospective LSN to BSN students MUST achieve preferred minimum scores on one of the following standardized tests: SAT, ACT, TEAS, or HESI.

If a student has existing scores from any of these four exams they may be submitted to the Office of Admissions for consideration. If the scores are more than five years old, the nursing committee may recommend that the student take a new exam.

Students that DO NOT have existing scores are encouraged to take the TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) exam. This exam is used in the admissions process by nursing and allied health programs nationwide. Although you may take the TEAS test at any site, if it is taken at Wilson College you will not incur a cost for sending scores to us.

Register for the TEAS 


LPNs seeking admission into the LPN accelerated option must meet admission requirements for the nursing program and provide two references (preferably one from a supervisor and one from an educator) addressing ability to competently function within their current role and succeed in an accelerated program.
