Nursing Entrance Testing

Tri-County Technical College's Assessment Center, located in Miller Hall on the Pendleton Campus, administers the following ATI tests:

  • Test of Essential Academic Skills (ATI TEAS) for students entering the Associate Degree Nursing program at a cost of $80.00
  • RN Fundamentals test for students entering the LPN to ADN Transition Nursing program at a cost of $40.00

ATI TEAS and RN Fundamentals tests will be offered on a walk-in basis from 8:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday on the Pendleton Campus. 

Prior to taking the ATI TEAS or the RN Fundamentals test, students must have completed the application process at Tri-County Technical College. Students wishing to take the ATI TEAS or the RN Fundamentals test should check-in at the Assessment Center, located in Miller Hall, Room 103. A picture ID is required for testing. Acceptable forms of identification include the following:

  • a state-issued picture ID (a driver's license for example);
  • a military ID; or
  • an official school ID (high school or college).

At the Assessment Center, the student will be given a Check-in/Score Report slip to take to the Cashier's Office, located in Ruby Hicks. After paying the testing fee, the Cashier will give the student a receipt. The student will then return to the Assessment Center (with the receipt) to start testing.

Students need to allow 3.5 to 4.0 hours for TEAS testing or 1.5 to 2 hours for RN Fundamentals testing. Students may not leave during testing unless extenuating circumstances arise. The TEAS test is comprised of subtests for Reading, Mathematics, Science and English. The RN Fundamentals test consists of questions designed to provide assessment data regarding a student's mastery of concepts of nursing fundamentals linked to the NCLEX test plan. Calculator links are provided on the screen when permitted. As a consideration when selecting a day for testing, keep in mind that the Assessment Center experiences heavy traffic two weeks before each semester begins and during final exam weeks.

A student with a documented hearing, learning, physical, psychological, and/or visual disability that will prevent him or her from taking the test under standard conditions may request special accommodations. Requests for special accommodations should be made directly to the Coordinator of Accessibility Services at (864)646-1564.
