The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS V) exam, by Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI), is the nursing entrance exam for these SFSC Nursing programs: Practical Nursing, Generic-RN Associate in Science (AS) Degree, and Transition LPN to RN AS Degree. The exams consist of four sections: Reading, Mathematics, Science, and English and Language Usage. The exam takes approximately 3 ½ hours to complete.
The application window each year opens the second week in January until the second Friday in April.
Before you may schedule to take the TEAS V exam at the Testing Center, you must meet with your advisor, and submit an online application to the specific program for which you are applying. Once this has been done, you will be emailed a Testing Referral form that you can present at any SFSC location to schedule your exam. You must schedule in advance and in-person. Please note, specific time slots are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. You must schedule your TEAS V testing appointment before the last day of the application deadline. The cost of the exam is $55, payable at the time you schedule your exam. At the time of scheduling, you will be provided with additional instructions and information regarding the process and the preparation for the TEAS V exam.
Examinees must wait 3 months before retaking the TEAS V exam.
