The Hillsborough Community College Nursing Program is using the Test of Essential Academic Skills (ATI TEAS®) as a pass/fail tool for potential nursing students. Students who score 60 or above on the ATI TEAS® exam will then be ranked by GPA for possible admission into the Nursing Program. This test will evaluate reading, math, science, English language usage. The TEAS® Version V will be accepted until January 15, 2018.
Students are allowed three attempts per year to achieve a passing score of at least 60, but must wait 30 days between attempts. The calendar date for the year begins with the first attempt. Passing the ATI TEAS® exam does not guarantee placement, but not passing assures that the student will not be accepted into the program.
