Course Description – TEAS Prep consists of 4 courses: Reading, Mathematics, Science, and English. The courses are broken down into different chapters where a professor for each subject will review and explain the materials that are expected to be on the TEAS test. There will be quizzes at the end of each chapter and 2 practice exams at the end with answers and rationale.
Why is it important?
Nursing is a prestigious, honorable profession with excellent salary and benefits. The TEAS test is important because many nursing schools use TEAS as an entrance exam for admission and require you meet their minimum score to show competency in the subjects. Nursing programs are selective admissions and doing well on the TEAS exam can be a big factor in being accepted into the program.
What’s on the TEAS?
The test measures your general knowledge of four subjects: Mathematics, Science, English and Language Usage, and Reading. There are 2 versions of the test: electronic and paper and pencil. The type of test you take depends on where you are taking it. However, the content on the test is the same no matter which version you take. Most institutions will offer the test at their location, but the scores are transferable to any college since the test does not change by location. Many colleges have a limit on how many times you are allowed to take the TEAS in a year so make sure you prepare for it even before your first attempt.
How long is the TEAS?
On the ATI TEAS test you will have 3 hours and 29 minutes to answer a total of 170 questions. In the Reading section of the test, you will have 64 minutes to answer 53 questions. In the Mathematics section of the test, you will have 54 minutes to answer 36 questions. In the Science section of the test, you will have 63 minutes to answer 53 question. In the English & Language Usage portion of the test, you will have 28 minutes to answer 28 questions. Although you will answer 170 questions, 20 of these are considered “experimental” and will not be counted toward your final score. You will not be made aware of which questions do not count.
When can I take the TEAS?
The TEAS test is given all year round. The times it is offered depend on when you apply for admission to nursing school and when the college or university offers the test.
How is the ATI TEAS exam scored?
Each section is scored separately on a scale of 0 – 100. Different nursing programs require different scores, so check with your program to find out what scores you need for your application.
The computer-administered version of the TEAS is scored immediately after you take it. You will receive your scores on-site. If you take the pencil-and-paper version of the test, ATI will score your exam within 48 hours of receiving it from the testing site.
There is no guess penalty on the TEAS—that is, if you get a question wrong, you do not lose any points. So, if you do not know the answer to a question, always guess and never leave it blank.
What is a passing score on the ATI TEAS exam?
TEAS exam is not a pass or fail test. The score shows the level of comprehension and skill. Each school has its own entrance requirements, so be sure to check the requirements of the institutions you want to attend so you can set appropriate goals for yourself.
