This site is inspired by years of teaching and tutoring. The goal is to help you study with confidence, conveniently.

As a college instructor, I taught a popular TEAS review course. The class filled up quickly. Many students were adults returning to school for a career change—already busy with work, family, and prerequisites.

To help these busy students succeed, I developed material beyond the minimum standards recommended by my school district and targeted areas where I saw students having the most difficulty. The result? Custom lessons and study guides that my students loved.

Despite the popularity of the course, I knew there had to be a better way. The class met at night—students drove through rush hour traffic, gave up time with their families, and had to balance already full schedules.

I imagined a TEAS review course that was more convenient, more affordable, and more customizable. I’ve used my professional teaching experience and education to create a unique TEAS 6 prep program, Prenursing Smarter.

The goal is for you to have an online study resource that is fun, interactive, and available 24/7.
