If a conditionally selected student has already taken and passed the latest version of the TEAS exam, they will not be required to re-test.) *For those that have applied and are awaiting a response, we encourage you to be studying to take the TEAS exam should you be offered a seat in the program. Your application to the program is your way of stating you are ready to start the program, complete the intake process successfully and prepared for the costs associated with the program.
