The ATI TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) is designed specifically to assess a student's preparedness entering the health science fields. Students are typically asked to take the TEAS as part of their basic admissions requirements for nursing or allied health school. 

The ATI TEAS is comprised of 170 questions set up in a multiple-choice format with four-option answers. Questions are designed to test the basic academic skills you will need to perform in class in the areas of: Reading, Math, Science, and English and Language Usage. Students should allow 209 minutes for the actual exam, plus time before and after the exam for checking in and out of the Testing Center.
