Competitive Admissions Exam – TEAS

TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) Testing

This test is used for competitive admission into the Practical Nursing, Associate Degree in Nursing Bridge, Radiologic Technology, and Diagnostic Medical Sonography programs at OFTC.

The test is comprised of five areas: reading, mathematics, science, English, and language usage.

OFTC Policy for TEAS Testing

  • OFTC requires that a practical nursing applicant must score a 59.5 to compete.
  • A student may test only three times within each academic year (AY19 is August 20, 2018 – August 5, 2019; AY20 is August 26, 2019 – August 3, 2020) with the first TEAS test and retest being at least 30 days apart. The higher of the two total scores is used in the competitive formula.
