TEAS is the pre-admission Nursing Program Test. We are happy to announce that additional TEAS exam dates will be administered using the remote proctoring service Proctor through ATI. This will permit candidates to test at home. All candidates will need a laptop or desktop computer in order to take the TEAS test remotely. No iPads, tablets or phones can be used. In addition, all computer devices will need to have the following technical requirements:

  • Microphone: Any microphone, external or internal
  •  Webcam: (320x240 VGA resolution minimum, can be internal or external webcam)
  • The internet speed required is 0.092 – 0.244 Mbps. Test your internet speed.
  • Google Chrome must be downloaded and installed on device
  • All testers must also have a government –issued ID (e.g. driver’s license)

A full list of ATI’s technical requirements can be found at www.atitesting.com/technical-requirements. We ask that students schedule at least 72 hours in advance of their desired testing time through our testing website. Tests will be administered beginning at 8:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. daily, Monday through Saturday.

 You will need to schedule the TEAS test through the Tyler Testing Center.  During this situational time frame, a student will only be allowed to schedule the TEAS test twice at Tyler.

Current Students

Prospective Students

On your application, you can select Nursing, AAS as your major and will be placed into it based on your agreement of the following:

As a student interested in nursing as my academic major, I understand that when I enroll at John Tyler Community College, my major may be declared as nursing. I understand that while nursing may be my declared major, I will not be eligible to enroll in any nursing classes (NSG prefix) until I am formally admitted into the AAS Nursing program.  I understand that I must first meet all requirements for admission into the AAS-Nursing program to include: completing all pre-requisite courses with a grade of “C” or better, maintaining a minimum GPA, meeting minimum entrance exam scores, and submitting the official application to the nursing program.  John Tyler Community College’s  AAS-Nursing program is competitive, and I understand that even if I achieve or exceed minimum entrance requirements, I am not guaranteed admission into the nursing program. If I am not formally admitted to the AAS-Nursing program at John Tyler Community College, I understand that I will not be allowed to enroll in nursing (NSG) classes and may be removed from the nursing major at that time.
