  1. What skills or knowledge does the test assess?

    Per the Assessment Technologies Institute, LLC (ATI) website, "This is a multiple-choice assessment of basic academic knowledge in reading, mathematics, science and English and language usage. The objectives assessed on the TEAS exam are those which nurse educators deemed most appropriate and relevant to measure entry level skills and abilities of nursing program applicants." Go to the ATI website to learn more about this test as well as to find links to assist in your test preparation.

  2. Is there a specific timeframe in which the test must be taken in order to be acceptable?

    Yes, we require that the test be taken within one year of the February 1 nursing application deadline (e.g., February 2, 2015 to February 1, 2016 for Fall 2016 application).

  3. Is there a limit for how many times I can take the test?

    Yes, the test may be taken a maximum of three times within the one-year timeframe prior to the February 1 nursing application deadline (e.g., February 2, 2015 to February 1, 2016 for Fall 2016 application), with at least a one-month interval between the tests.

  4. Is there a minimum score required on the test for the UW Basic BSN application?

    We have not yet specified a minimum score required for the Teas-V test. As with any aspect of the admission criteria…the better you do, the better it factors in with the other admission criteria. Should the test be taken more than once within the year of the application deadline, we will use the highest score in the admission process.

  5. Where do I take the test?

    The University of Wyoming Testing Center is a designated site for this test, although it may also be taken at any designated site. At the UW Testing Center, please be aware that certain times of the year present more challenges for scheduling test times than at other times (e.g. January can be extremely busy; whereas summer/late fall may be have more test times available).  See #9 below for information about the UW Testing Center.

  6. Is there a fee to pay to take the test?

    There is a non-refundable fee associated with the taking of this test which is the responsibility of the student; that fee is determined by the testing site.

  7. Can I reschedule my test date?

    No, according to ATI all registrations are final and will not be rescheduled or refunded. In the event that you are unable to attend your scheduled date, you would be responsible for repaying and rescheduling for a new available test date through the ATI website.

    If you know for positive that you cannot test on the date that you registered for, we encourage you to call ATI (800-667-7531) and ask to be removed from that date’s roster allowing someone else the option of being able to potentially register for that seat/date.

  8. How and where do I register for the TEAS-V test?

    You will complete your registration through the ATI website identified below. To assist you with that process, please find  information files linked below:

  9. How are official test scores obtained/accessible to the FWWSON for my nursing application?

    • For official scores…

      • For those testing through the UW Testing Center, the FWWSON has access to test scores through our ATI administrative link to document compliance of this requirement (no need to order a TEAS Transcript through ATI).

      • For those testing at a site other than the UW Testing Center a TEAS Transcript must be ordered and paid for through ATI. To order a TEAS transcript...

        • Go to the ATI website, www.atitesting.com

        • Click on Online Store located at top of screen

        • Click on See products for Students linked under the Student heading on the ATI Store site

        • TEAS Transcript – click on Add to Cart (there is a charge associated with the order; noted on ATI website)

        • Follow Check Out directions from there (within that process, identify to which school scores should be sent)

  10. University of Wyoming Testing Center Information

    • Location: Knight Hall Basement, Room 4 (corner of 13th and Ivinson Streets)

    • When to Arrive for Testing: Please arrive 15 minutes early to the testing site. Those arriving late will NOT be allowed to test.

    • Price(non-refundable): $70 subject to change (payable through the ATI registration site)

    • Deadline to test: January 31 (results must be received no later than February 1 by the School of Nursing)

    • Test Version: TEAS V

    • Test Dates:
      Please refer to the ATI registration site, http://www.atitesting.com, for available TEAS-V test dates through the UW Testing Center. Please note that there are a limited number of seats available for each established test date; so plan and register early to ensure your preferred testing date. Also be aware that ATI is only posting test dates a couple months or so out there at a time; so check back on their site periodically if looking for a later test date.  

      As you are scheduling, please do not sign up for additional/multiple test dates until after you have tested and know if there truly is a need to retest; that way, others also have an opportunity to schedule to test as well (that has been an issue we have encountered in the past).
