Retakes must wait for a minimum of 15 days between attempts. Please make sure you schedule your TEAS test with enough time in between tests if you plan on taking the TEAS test for a second time. You will follow the same procedures as above when scheduling a retake. If you are applying for the NMJC RN program a copy of your results will be sent to our NMJC Nursing Department.
