Step 3: Take the ATI Test of Essential Academic Skills (ATI TEAS)
Long Beach City College adheres to the guidelines provided by the California Community College Chancellors Office with regards to the TEAS test and remediation policy. After acceptance into the nursing program, students must pass the TEAS test with a 62% or higher on their first attempt. If students do not pass on their first attempt, they will be referred to the Learning and Academic Resource Center to be assigned a remediation plan.
Students can also enroll in the free non-credit TEAS courses to prepare to take the TEAS exam. Visit the TEAS page for more information.
Step 4: Complete a Background Check
Students are required to complete a background check. Clinical facilities reserve the right to refuse placement based on previous convictions on background checks. Ability to obtain licensure may also be affected by a record of convictions.
