What is a passing score on the TEAS?

Great question. The passing score for the TEAS varies from program to program. Each school should clearly state its own benchmarks and requirements on its website. If a program is competitive, it may have much higher requirements than other programs. The best thing to do is to write out your desired program and their score minimums on a sheet along with your study schedule and TEAS practice test results. 

What happens if I don’t pass the TEAS the first time?

The TEAS can typically be retaken, however, much like with passing scores on the TEAS, the retake policy can vary from school to school. Some states won’t allow more than two retakes per year. Research your state’s and program’s specific policies for the most accurate information.
