Frequently Asked Questions

The TEAS 6 and TEAS 7 exam scores are equated, which means scores are comparable. Schools will be able to accept and compare student TEAS exam scores from either the TEAS 6 or TEAS 7 version. If you have already taken the ATI TEAS 6 exam and achieved your desired score, you may not have to take the ATI TEAS 7. Please check with the school(s) where you are applying to understand their admissions requirements prior to registering for a TEAS exam.

All schools will be switched over to the TEAS 7 exam in early June. ATI will announce an official cut-over date when our timelines are set. At that time, the TEAS 6 exam will be retired, and students will be required to take the ATI TEAS 7.

Official ATI TEAS prep will be released in late February 2022. Our Official ATI TEAS Prep will be aligned to the ATI TEAS 7 exam. This new prep has been designed to prepare you for the ATI TEAS 7 exam as well as the ATI TEAS 6 exam if you should choose to take the TEAS 6 exam prior to the TEAS 7 release. Official ATI TEAS 6 prep material will no longer be sold in our store once we release the ATI TEAS 7 prep materials in late February 2022.

ATI conducted research with subject matter experts in nursing education, math, science, reading, and English to ensure the test blueprint reflects current K-12 education standards as well as nursing, and allied health program criteria. These experts were recruited nationally and represent all program types. During its 20-year existence, the TEAS has undergone 6 blueprint reviews and revisions as education standards have changed. Specifically, nursing and allied health programs have relied on it to:

  • Evaluate applicants’ academic preparedness for nursing and allied health studies
  • Reduce attrition
  • Increase student retention
