The new Kaskaskia College Nursing program admission process will use test results attained on the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS® test) as the basis for admission to the program. The test was created by ATI Nursing Education, which is part of Ascend Learning and is currently being used by 2,100 colleges and universities across the country to provide technology-based assessment solutions for healthcare education.
The Kaskaskia College Community Education Department will host a TEAS Test Preparation Course in August for students who are preparing to take the TEAS test for entry into the KC Nursing Program.
Areas of review will include reading comprehension, English, mathematics, basic science, and technical reasoning as they apply in healthcare. Other topics related to successful test taking, such as managing test anxiety and discovering learning styles are also covered.
The TEAS® Test Preparation course will be held on the main campus in the Professional Careers Building, Room 122, from 8:30 to 4:00 on Saturdays beginning August 23 and ending on September 6, 2014. The cost of the test preparation course will be $119.00. The required textbook is available in the KC Bookstore for $59.00. The course number is VOCS 267 MC01W. Cost for the course is payable in advance, and is not covered by financial aid assistance.
There will be an additional charge for the TEAS® Test that will be collected by ATI during the online test registration process. After registering on the ATI website and receiving a test authorization code.
