 Calculation of Points for Nursing Program Applicants

TEAS V Testing

  • The TEAS V Exam will be used in assessing the academic readiness of nursing program applicants. The exam measures skills in reading, mathematics, science, English, and language usage. The score on this exam will be utilized in calculating points for (potential) admission into one of the nursing programs offered at CACC.
    TEAS V may only be taken 2 times per admission cycle and students must wait 6 weeks to retest. CACC will only accept TEAS V results no older than 3 years. If the exam is taken at another institution, CACC will only accept official TEAS scores from ATI. The cost of the exam is $65.00; missed exams are non-refundable.
    All individuals preparing to take the TEAS test must create an ATI account. You may create an account by going to ATI website at http://www.atitesting.com and click on create a new account then follow the screen prompts. You will need your ATI username and password to take the test. Please bring this information with you to the testing location.
    Two documents are included, How to Create a New Account, and How to Register for the TEAS Test. Please refer to these as needed.
  • Preparing for the TEAS:
    The following items are available for your purchase at atitesting.com.
    • TEAS Pre-Test Study Manual
    • TEAS Online Practice Assessments

Be sure your application is complete before the appropriate deadline!

REMEMBER: Admission to Nursing Programs is competitive and the number of students accepted is limited. Meeting the minimal requirements does not guarantee acceptance into the Nursing Programs. All complete files meeting the minimum requirements are reviewed with a point system set by the college and available for review in the college catalog. Nursing program admission criteria may change as needed in order to meet the requirements of the college, state, or national approval accrediting agencies.
