ATI TEAS Test

At Hawkeye Community College, it is our goal to help students be successful in our programs. This pre-admission exam will help determine student readiness to begin the Nursing curriculum and be utilized to provide advising.

The ATI TEAS test (Test of Essential Academic Skills), also referred to as the TEAS VI test, is a computerized multiple-choice assessment of basic academic knowledge in reading, mathematics, science, and English and language usage. The objectives assessed on the ATI TEAS test are those which nurse educators deemed most appropriate and relevant to measure entry level skills and abilities of nursing program applicants.

Scores from other colleges will not be accepted. Please register for a date and time below to take your ATI TEAS test.

Content Area Number of Test Items Amount of Time Allotted
Reading 42 50 minutes
Mathematics 30 56 minutes
Science 48 38 minutes
English and Language Usage 30 65 minutes
TOTAL 170 209 minutes

Registering for the ATI TEAS Test

Pre-Nursing students will still need to complete the TEAS test to move to the waitlist/eligibility list for the Nursing program.

To schedule your TEAS exam please call Evaluation and Testing. Virtual and in-person sessions are available. Virtual testing dates will close for registration one week before the test date to ensure proctoring software can be installed and tested.

Continue to prep and study so you will do well when you take the TEAS test.
