The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS Test) is a standardized, multiple choice exam for students entering into nursing school in the USA. It is often used to determine the ability of potential students to adjust to a nursing program. The test is created and administered by Assessment Technologies Institute.
Effective Summer 2021, the Practical Nursing program will only admit new cohorts at the Hall Campus in the Fall each year. We will no longer offer practical nursing occupational courses on the Forsyth Campus. We will accept our last cohort of 16 students this Fall, 2021 at the Hall Campus. Beginning Fall, 2022, a cohort of 40 students will be accepted every year on the Hall Campus only.
“I wanted to do something that was interesting, meaningful, and feed my soul. Nursing has done all of that and more for me. I had several obstacles when I started the Practical Nursing Program at Lanier Technical College due to language barriers. I took ESL (English as a Second Language) classes to help overcome my language barrier. If I made, it you can too!” said Choi. 10/24/2020
