The ATI TEAS is used to determine the candidate’s academic preparedness level. The exam covers the areas of reading, mathematics, science, English and language usage. You will be given a score and a rank of developmental, basic, proficient, advanced, or exemplary. The higher the score and the rank, the higher the candidate will rank in the pool of applicants.
TEAS Exam scores must be earned within one year of seeking candidacy to the School of Nursing and Health Professions. The test can be retaken once each application period after a 30 day wait time.
If you plan to seek BSN candidacy, you are urged to go to the TEAS website and start prepping for the exam. They have a suggested six-week study plan available on the website.
