Student who has not taken the TEAS examination will be invited to take the examination on campus. The ATI TEAS (“TEAS 7”), EFFECTIVE 2022, admission examination consists of 170 questions, proctored, standardized assessment which evaluates each student on skills in reading, math, science, English and language use. Students may prepare for the “TEAS” admission examination by purchasing from the bookstore the TEAS Pre-Test Study Manual prior to taking the admission examination. The minimum required “TEAS” score is 62% to pass.

Nursing Program application and transcripts will be evaluated using the criteria from the Chancellor’s Office Validation Study. The Chancellor’s Office Validation Study is based on predicting student success in the Nursing Program. The Chancellor’s Office Validation Study evaluates the student’s overall grade point average (GPA), the GPA of Anatomy, Physiology, Microbiology, and English, and the repetitions of Anatomy, Physiology and Microbiology. This evaluation criterion establishes a “cut score”. Students must receive a cut score of 80 or above on the Chancellor’s Office Validation Study to be considered for admission into the Nursing Program.
