What Is the ATI TEAS Exam?

ATI TEAS Exam overview:

  • The exam is required for entrance to most health science programs, such as nursing degrees.
  • The exam is multiple-choice with 170 questions and a 209-minute time limit.
  • There are four subjects, covering material mostly taught between grades 7 to 12, tested in individual sections in the following order: Reading, Math, Science, and English and Language Usage.
  • The ATI TEAS stands for the Assessment Institute of Technologies Test of Essential Academic Skills.
  • The test is distributed by ATI, also called ATI Testing.
  • The test can be referred to as the ATI TEAS, the TEAS 6, the TEAS VI, the ATI Nursing exam, and generally as the TEAS test..

If you have a TEAS test scheduled for 2022, start preparing for the exam early. Spaces for nursing programs are limited, so it is vital you score high on the TEAS test to set your application apart from the competition.

How to Prepare for the ATI TEAS Test

  • Familiarize yourself with the TEAS test's formalities, like when to register and where you can take the test.
  • Create a study plan tailored to the time you have available before test day.
  • Expose yourself to TEAS test practice as much as you can. Doing so will test your knowledge, refocus your attention on your weakest areas, and help you familiarize yourself with the style of the test.
  • Avoid TEAS V practice tests. The test material on the ATI TEAS is not the same as the TEAS V. You will need to take TEAS 6 practice tests when preparing for the ATI TEAS exam.
  • Study for the test in one- to two-week study blocks. Learn and review material, prioritizing the areas you struggle with most.
  • Take a practice TEAS test after each period of study. Try to take a full-length TEAS practice test, or practice a specific section of the test, under time constraints.
  • Adjust your study plan and study style to address your areas of weakness. You can visit any of our TEAS subject pages to gain access to TEAS study guides by subject.
  • Review all the formalities for the test when test day is a week away. Remind yourself what time it is being administered, what you may or may not take into the test center, and how to get there.
  • Take a trial practice test a few days before the TEAS test. Don’t worry if you don't do as well as you would like; your scores will help focus your efforts on the areas of study that need the most attention.

TEAS Test Scores - What Is a Good Score?

  • A target composite score (all four subjects combined) of at least 10% above your program’s required score is advised. The passing grade you will need to achieve is set by the program you are applying to. It can be anywhere from between 60–70% for lower ranking programs to 85-95% for higher ranking programs.
  • The Mean National Pass Grade and the Mean Program Pass Grade should be treated as indicators, not as grade targets. The competition for nursing programs is high, and this, combined with faculty shortages, results in qualified applicants being rejected from programs.
