Nursing Program TEAS Exam Information

All nursing program applicants will be required to take the Test of Essential Academic Skills [TEAS] Version 7 Exam.

The TEAS Version 7 test covers Reading, Math, Science, English, and Language usage. Students are advised to have completed (or be near completion) 10 credit hours of college coursework prior to taking the TEAS test. This should include appropriate Math, English, and Science courses.

To be considered for fall admission to the nursing program, the TEAS test must be taken between June 1st of the previous year and January 31st of the year the applicant intends to start the nursing program (i.e., if applying for the fall 2024, TEAS tests must be taken between June 1, 2023 and January 31, 2024).

The TEAS test may be taken multiple times with at least 14 days between attempts. Each attempt is at the applicant’s expense. A current government issued ID with photo, signature and permanent address and a credit/debit card is required for the ATI TEAS.


A study guide is available at the Northeast library (print and online) as well as Practice Tests. A practice exam is also available online for a fee.
