For Certified Nursing Assistants and Patient Care workers


Pre-TEAS and TEAS Prep for Certified Nursing Assistants

Are you a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) or patient care worker who wants to prepare academically for the goal of nursing school? 

This series of free courses helps health care workers with intermediate English skills take the next step in their journey toward nursing school admissions. Students will learn the academic reading and writing skills tested by the TEAS exam, starting from a more foundational level. The TEAS exam is an admissions requirement for nursing programs that can be a barrier to nonnative English speaking applicants. 

Note: Presently, this series focusses on the TEAS reading & writing subtests. Students will still need further study to prepare for the TEAS science & math subtests.
