TEAS V - Test of Essential Academic Skills


Applicants seeking admission into the Nursing programs must take the TEAS V Examination:

  • Nursing Associate Degree – Deadline: January 31, 2015
  • RIBN Nursing Program – Deadline: January 31, 2015

The TEAS V measures a student’s ability in Reading, Mathematics, Science and English and Language Usage.  The adjusted individual total score will be used as one component in the highly competitive health science selection process.  This score will range from 0% to 100%.  Nursing programs use this score differently based on specific program selection criteria.  (See your Nursing advisor for details.)

You may test once per academic year (defined as August 1 through July 31).  Scores will be considered valid for a term of three years from the date of the exam. 

If you do not show for an exam, then you will have to re-pay to register for another exam.  If you need to reschedule an exam, you will need to contact ATI Testing directly.
