ATI TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills)

The ATI TEAS was developed to measure basic essential skills in the academic content area domains of Reading, Mathematics, Science, and English and Language Usage. These entry-level skills were deemed important by nursing program curriculum experts.

The ATI TEAS is a timed, 170-item, four option, multiple-choice assessment. This is a computer-based test. Calculators may be used during testing. The test takes approximately four hours. Scores are available immediately after testing is complete.

This test is required in the application process for the Practical Nursing program at Moberly and Mexico, MO. The applicant must have a composite score of 58% or higher on this test to apply to the Practical Nursing program. Applicants may not repeat ATI TEAS testing until 30 days have passed since the previous test.

There is a $60.00 fee to take the ATI TEAS exam. This test is given at the Moberly and Mexico locations.
