Why is the ATI TEAS Exam changing?
The ATI TEAS exam is updated every 4 to 6 years.
ATI conducted research with subject matter experts in nursing education, math, science, reading, and English to ensure the test blueprint reflects evolving Common Core State 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.
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.
