Three nurses


The TEAS (or Test of Essential Academic Skills) is the test all new students admitted to the LBCC Registered Nursing Program must take.  The test includes questions in four main areas: Reading, Math, English and Science.  Each of these sections is made up of several other sections; math, for example, contains questions in fractions, decimals, percentages, algebra and metric conversions.  In order to remain in the program once provisionally admitted, students must earn an overall score of at least 62%.

Many students, due to their prerequisite course work, are adequately prepared for the test and are able to meet the minimum score criteria.  Other students find it
helpful to brush up on some of the skills that they may have only last reviewed several semesters ago. 

Students who would like to prepare for the TEAS exam prior to taking it or who have been referred by the Nursing Department for remediation after having taken the test may do so by
enrolling in BAE 601B, a zero-unit, open-entry/open-exit course.  This course is a self-paced course designed to meet individual student needs.  You may set your own schedule with a three-hours per week minimum and work with instructors to identify and brush up on those specific areas of the test you need most.

To register in BAE 601B, you must be a currently enrolled LBCC student.  If the course is offered as “instructor consent” please see the staff in one of the Multidisciplinary Success Centers for a permission number.

For further information, please call 562.938.3991 for the PCC Center or visit EE-206 or 562.938.4699 for the LAC Center or visit L-212.
