Test Proctoring


ATI TEAS Information

The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) entrance test is a requirement of the NWC Practical Nursing Program and Associate Degree Nursing Program. The TEAS measures basic essential skills in the academic content area domains of reading, mathematics, science, and English/language usage and is taken online. The objectives assessed are those which nurse educators deem most appropriate and relevant to measure entry level skills and abilities of nursing program applicants. The TEAS exam is administered by the Assessment Technologies Institute, LLC (ATI).

The TEAS test can be taken a total of two times per application period. Scores used for entrance must be obtained within the last two years. TEAS tests are proctored January through the first Friday of March and September through the last Friday of October only.

The TEAS test is computerized and takes approximately 3 - 4 hours. You must arrive at the designated test site 15 minutes early and wear comfortable clothes that can accommodate a variety of room temperatures. Distractions will not be allowed! Out of respect for those students who do arrive on time, the doors will lock promptly at the start time and late arrivals will not be admitted to take the exam.

Payment ($70) is made during the testing session and is collected online through ATI by debit or credit card. You must present a photo ID at the time you take the test. If your debit or credit card is denied by the online payment system, your testing session is forfeited.

Results of the test are available immediately upon completion of the test. The testing monitor CANNOT tell you if your score was high enough to be admitted to the program.
