Practical Nursing Entrance Exam Preparation

Students are required to take the TEAS Exam (Test of Essential Academic Skills) as part of the admissions process for acceptance into the Practical Nursing program. To help students prepare for the exam, Tri-County is offering a series of courses designed to improve students' competencies in this standardized testing process.  English and Math are covered separately in 3-session courses.  A Test-Taking Skills Development, 1-session course is also offered. 

Students who sign up for all three courses pay a total of $199 and receive the benefit of a 15% discount off of the individual course prices.
