The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is designed to evaluate the academic readiness of candidates prior to admission into the nursing program. The TEAS is similar to the ACT. There will be four sections; Mathematics, Reading, Science, and English and Language Usage. The results also provide documentation useful for counseling and advisement. This examination also assesses the candidate’s ability to respond and apply knowledge to new situations and to understand complex technical material and relationships. These scores will be used as part of the application process and will in no way be the sole criteria for determining entrance into the clinical major. For more information on how to study for the test, please visit the ATI TEAS website.
All students who are interested in completing the TEAS can test at UMKC School of Nursing & Health Studies. Students will be required to pay a testing fee of $85.00 in the form of a check, money order, or cash and due at the time of testing. Checks and money order should be made out to UMKC SoNHS.
