Program Course Listing

 Vocational Nursing Certificate Courses



 All applicants must be pretested (Board of Nursing Rule 214.8-c4). No exceptions to pretest requirements will be granted to applicants with previous college credit or college degrees. This program only accepts the ATI TEAS - PN assessment (Nursing) test within 1 year from date of examination.  Applicants must take the TEAS PN assessment (nursing) and submit scores to St. Philip’s College Vocational Nursing Program with their completed application.

The TEAS - PN assessment (The Essential Academic Skills for Practical Nursing) is a multiple-choice assessment of basic academic knowledge in reading, essential math, basic science, and English and language usage.
The objectives assessed on the TEAS - PN (Nursing) assessment are those which nurse educators deem the most appropriate and relevant to measure entry-level skills and abilities of nursing program applicants.
This allows St. Philip's College to have the pertinent information needed to make normative comparisons.


 Information on the TEAS - PN (Nursing) assessment test, how to prepare, and where to take the test can be found at:
