Hi.

I will appreciate any information and/or recommendation regarding entrance examination for Health Sciences.  

We need a way to effectively screen our applicants.

We use the TEAS test as part of the application process. Many health programs use this exam as well and have a minimum score students must meet to be eligible for entrance. We have not set a minimum score but like to see a score of 60 or higher. Students that score lower than 60 have been found to struggle more in the program than those with higher TEAS scores.
Information on this test can be found at: TEAS Test | Test of Essential Academic Skills | ATI
