First Step: Come to a Testing Session

The first step in being accepted into the nursing program at Herzing University is to successfully pass the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) exam. Please go to https://atitesting.com/Home.aspx to learn more about the TEAS exam. This is an exam that should be taken seriously as it is our primary way of selecting the students who will be accepted into the program. We recommend that students study and prepare for this 3-hour exam by getting the TEAS – Version V Study Guide. This book may be purchased at the Online Store at the link above. Herzing University also has the study guide available for $50, and it can be picked up in our main office on campus. The TEAS Exam may be taken a total of 2 times each year.
