Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) Prep Workshop
The TEAS is used as part of the admission process for many Nursing and Allied Health programs in our area. As of last year, an updated version of the TEAS test is being used. Please attend the Training Fund’s TEAS workshop that will go over the updated TEAS test and strategies to be successful.
Next year, the SEIU Healthcare 1199NW Multi-Employer Training and Education Fund will begin providing benefits to over 1,000 members at Deaconess and Valley Hospitals in Spokane, Washington.
