Conquering the TEAS
Maintain Your Confidence
Whether you are testing for the first time or retesting, remain confident! If you are retesting, you are now returning with experience because you know what to expect. Use this knowledge to boost your confidence!
Consider a Study Partner or Form a Study Group
You are not alone. There is power in doing this together!
The key to a successful TEAS score is to prepare. Take advantage of the FREE options PCC has available.
Access Online Test Prep Resources
TEAS practice tests are also available online through the PCC Library’s PrepSTEP database and may be accessed from off campus with regular myPittCC sign-in credentials (when in the PrepSTEP database, type TEAS in the search bar). Users must create their own accounts for PrepSTEP to access tests, save their progress, etc. Additional online resources you may find useful are listed in the TEAS Testing Guide.
Visit TASC for Tutoring
PCC’s Tutorial and Academic Success Center (TASC) can assist currently enrolled PCC students with preparing for standardized testing. Contact TASC at 252-493-7258 or firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment with a tutor. Appointments may also be scheduled using the Tutoring Appointment Request Form.
Analyze Your TEAS Score Report from Your First Testing Attempt to Determine Areas You Need to Focus On
It helps to know your weaknesses and what areas you need to focus on when preparing to retest. Before retesting, analyze your TEAS score report from your first attempt and know exactly where you stand. Remember, you are a conqueror! Conquerors face what is in front of them and strategize to overcome!

Evaluate Your Plan and Consider Other Options
Having a backup plan is not admitting defeat; instead, it is thinking ahead! Your advisor can help you explore other options. An example of a backup plan may be to consider other programs and/or educational options. Keep in mind, you can apply to a maximum of two health sciences programs at one time.
Reach Out to Counseling Services
Test anxiety is a real thing that you may experience. PCC has trained counselors available to assist and provide you support. To speak with a PCC counselor, contact Counseling Services at 252-493-7809.
