ATI TEAS Test Fee: $70.00
ATTENTION ALL NURSING APPLICANTS (PN, ADN, RIBN, LPN TO ADN Transition)!!!
Completion of the ATI TEAS assessment with a minimum score of 58.7% (Adjusted Individual Total Score) is required for all nursing program applicants. Beginning with the Fall 2018 application year, only TWO attempts on the ATI TEAS are permitted per program application year. The program application year is from April 1, 2017 to the applicable PROGRAM APPLICATION deadline for each nursing program offered at VGCC. If a student makes more than two attempts in the program application year, only the FIRST TWO scores (according to date taken) will be accepted. This includes ATI TEAS test scores received from other test locations taken during the program application year. This is in compliance with ATI’s Best Practices regarding administration of the ATI TEAS test.
The ATI TEAS assessment may be taken at VGCC or official scores from other schools will be accepted. The ATI TEAS assessment must be taken within 5 years of the PROGRAM APPLICATION deadline.

THE NEW ATI TEAS
ATI launched the new ATI TEAS on August 31, 2016. Although ATI has now retired the TEAS V and it will no longer be administered, VGCC will continue to accept TEAS V scores taken within 5 years of the Complete PROGRAM APPLICATION deadline.
PREPARE FOR THE TEAS TEST
Official Study Manual: A new study manual, the ATI TEAS Study Manual - Sixth Edition, has been developed to help students prepare specifically for the ATI TEAS. For best results, we strongly recommend that students purchase the new study manual to prepare for the test. The manual is available through the ATI Online Store and in VGCC Bookstores on all campuses. Copies of the manual are also available for student use in the resource area of all VGCC campus libraries.
The ATI TEAS study manual streamlines applicants' preparation for the TEAS. This official TEAS resource, written specifically to address the needs of students preparing to take the TEAS, is proven to work. On average, students who used TEAS prep materials from ATI scored higher on their TEAS test than those using other companies' materials or no study prep materials.
