The test measures your general knowledge of four subjects: Mathematics, Science, English and Language Usage, and Reading. As of August 31, 2016, the TEAS V was retired and replaced by an updated version, the ATI TEAS (also referred to as the TEAS 6). 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. The content on the test is the same no matter which version you take.

There is a testing fee to take the TEAS test, though the cost varies depending on where you are taking the test. Typically it is around $100. Sending the results to one school is included in the test fee, but if you want your results sent to more than one school it will cost $27 per school. It is best to contact the school to which you are applying to nursing school for more information.
If you are taking the pencil and paper version of the test you will need to bring several sharpened number 2 pencils and erasers. You will also need to bring some form of legal identification such as a driver’s license or passport. School IDs do not count. You may not bring any outside materials such as calculators to the testing site. Food, drinks, and cell phones are also not allowed.
Nursing is a growing and dynamic field that provides boundless opportunities for growth, learning, and advancement. Nurses can practice in a variety of settings, including doctors’ offices, clinics, hospitals, schools, and nursing homes.
To be eligible to take the test you must first visit the official ATI testing website. From here you will create an account that you will use if you take the electronic version of the test. You can also find information about testing sites and fees associated with the exam.
The TEAS test is important because it is your ticket for admission into certain nursing schools. Some schools use the TEAS test exclusively for admission, while other schools may offer several different nursing entrance exams from which to choose.
Registered nurses make a median salary of about $71,000 annually, though this number can vary greatly depending on geographic location, level of education, and type of nursing that is practiced.
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.
