All students who qualify to apply to the Nursing program will be invited to take the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS). The TEAS measures basic essential skills in the areas of reading, math, science and English and Language usage.
Southwest accepts TEAS version 5 and the passing score is 62%
Version 5 has 170 questions:

Students who have previously taken TEAS version 5, but did not score a 62%, must score a 62% on EACH section in order to pass when they take it again.
The TEAS is usually offered to Southwest applicants in November and May. The test is proctored on campus and taken on the computer. Students must be invited to take the test with Southwest.
For study purposes, it is recommended that students use the TEAS 5 Pre-Test Study Manual.
