Many nursing schools require candidates to take an entrance exam. Nursing programs are under extreme pressure to only admit the most qualified candidates because of accreditation requirements concerning retention, pass rates, and placement success. The TEAS test, also known as the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS V), is a standardized entrance admissions test used by many nursing programs to assess the suitability of a candidate for admission. The TEAS V test is developed by ATI and is intended to be a predictor of a student's success in nursing school. The TEAS test assesses a nursing candidate's skills in reading, math, science and English and language usage.

The TEAS test is a multiple choice exam that contains four sections. The overall test contains 170 questions and has a three hour and 29 minute (209 minute) time limit. Of the 170 total questions, 20 questions are used for internal testing purposes and not scored.

The best way to prepare for a standardized admissions test such as the TEAS is to take plenty of practice tests. Good Luck!
