The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS Test) is a standardized, multiple choice exam for students applying for nursing school in the United States.[1] It is often used to determine the ability of potential students to adjust to a nursing program. The test is created and administered by Assessment Technologies Institute.

On August 31, 2016, the TEAS V test was retired in favor of the newest version called ATI TEAS. While the difficulty is essentially the same, all components were updated to latest standards of the profession.[2]

The exam is 209 minutes and consists of 170 questions, drawn from a TEAS Test Bank consisting of thousands of questions that are given on several versions of the exam.

The topics covered are reading, mathematics, science, and English language and usage.[3]
