Testing Has Begun for the August 2020 One Year Daytime Practical Nursing Program

If you are interested in the one year daytime Practical Nursing program set to begin in August 2020 the first step will be calling (304) 256-3964 to schedule your TABE exam. If you are unable to reach someone by phone to schedule this test you may also email Denise Ballard at sdballard@k12.wv.us and provide your name, phone number, and the program you are interested in and she will contact you to schedule your TABE test.  The TABE test is a free adult basic skills test.  Free tutoring is available if needed for this test.

Once you complete your TABE test the second step is to register for the TEAS test.  TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) Testing at ACT will begin on March 2, 2020. Applicants must register at ACT's office before testing. Registration is open now for students who have already completed the first step which is the TABE exam. A non-refundable $75.00 test fee is due at the time of registration. (You may pay with check or cash. Please bring the correct change as the office does not keep change.) TEAS tests are via computer at ACT.  Applicants must be at the test site no later than 4:45 pm and bring a photo ID. Testing will begin promptly at 5:00 pm. Please visit ATItesting.com for more information regarding the TEAS exam.

If you are really interested in this program you also may want to go ahead and fill out a FAFSA for next school year.  Our school code is 015748.  This will allow you to have a head start on getting your financial aid information in order prior to school beginning in the fall.

Programs Currently Registering Students

We are accepting Phlebotomy Technician students which will begin on February 3, 2020.  It is a fourteen-week program meeting Monday-Thursday from 6 pm to 9 pm.

The first step to any of the above programs is to take a free TABE (adult basic skills) Test.  You can schedule that test by calling 304-256-3964 or you can also email sdballard@k12.wv.us.  If you email make sure you include your name, program you are interested in, and a phone number they can reach you at.  There is free tutoring available for this test if needed.
