ATI TEAS V (Test of Essential Academic Skills)
Beginning with the application period for Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 admissions, the ATI TEAS V must be passed before applying to the program.
California Senate Bill (SB) 1309 states that all accepted nursing students must pass an English, math, and science diagnostic assessment prior to enrollment into the Registered Nursing Program.
The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS V) from ATI will be used. The passing score has been set statewide at 62. We will accept TEAS score of 62% and higher. Please note, you only need to take the TEAS exam one time if you score 62% or higher. However, if you fail the first time, you are allowed to repeat the exam and must pass the second attempt. Failing the TEAS exam twice will make you ineligible to apply to our program.
The TEAS V test is not offered at Ohlone College. To search for ATI testing sites and register for the exam, please go http://www.atitesting.com/ati_store/product.aspx?zpid=1170. You may also want to search other colleges and universities with a nursing program (CSU East Bay, San Jose, San Francisco) for TEAS test dates.
