As of June 2022, ATI will transition to the TEAS version 7 exam. TEAS version 6 will be retired. ATI TEAS version 6 will still be accepted for application submissions through Spring 2023. Starting Fall 2023 only TEAS version 7 will be accepted.
The IVC Nursing Program is accepting the TEAS exam proctored remotely online by ATI or completed in person at an approved ATI testing location. Students interested in taking the exam must register at www.atitesting.com. The exam fee is $115 and must be paid directly to ATI. All questions or concerns regarding the TEAS exam will need to be directed to ATI's customer service.
All RN and LVN to RN Bridge applicants must pass the TEAS exam with a total score of 62% or higher. Only the first passing score of 62% or higher will be considered for admission in conjunction with the required admission criteria.
Points are only awarded when a student has passed with a 62% or higher on the first attempt. If a student would like to achieve a higher score after their first passing score attempt, a 1 year wait time is required before retesting again.
90 – 100% = 20 points
70 – 89% = 17 points
62 – 69% = 12 points
61% or less = 0 points
TEAS Retesting Policy:
Students will have two attempts to take TEAS within a 1-year period. If the student does not pass with a total score of 62% on the first attempt, then a four-month waiting period is required. The four-month waiting period will allow students to remediate in areas needing improvement. The Nursing department will accept the score from the second attempt only (within the same version) with the requirement that it is taken after the four months wait period from the first failed test attempt. If a passing score is not achieved after two attempts regardless of where it is was taken, the student can no longer apply to the Registered Nursing Program at Imperial Valley College.
Students needing remediation in any of the TEAS content areas must work with the IVC Study Skills Center, https://www.imperial.edu/students/learning-services/study-skills-center/. Study materials can be purchased at the ATI Testing website, www.atitesting.com.
