Nursing TEAS


(Test of Essential Academic Skills)

The ATI TEAS (Test of Academic Skills) was developed to measure basic essential skills in academic content area domains for Reading, Mathematics, Science, and English and Language Usage. These entry level skills were deemed important for nursing program applicants by a panel of nursing program curriculum experts. The ATI TEAS is a 170 four-option, multiple-choice questions assessment. To order review materials and online practice session please go to ATI Testing website.

Based on the recommendation of the California Community College Nursing Advisory Committee, the cut score for ATI TEAS has been set at score of 62%.

All applicants are required to take and pass the ATI TEAS prior to application.
