TEAS Testing Information & NCLEX PASS RATES

NRCC currently requires ATI TEAS Version 6 for P.N. admission. Here are some important details:

  1. Information about TEAS testing for future admissions will be updated in advance of beginning testing in late fall semester.
  2. TEAS testing is scheduled for the following dates at the NRCC Testing Center in Dublin:

    Date Time
    November 29 – December 2, 2021 10:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. times available
    December 20 – December 22, 2021 10:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. times available
    January 4 – January 14, 2022 10:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. times available

    Please call the Testing Center at (540) 674-3600, extension 4341, to schedule an appointment for your test date and time. You are encouraged to schedule as soon as possible, as dates and times are limited and will fill quickly. Additional testing dates will be made available if the need arises.

    Make sure when you schedule your test time that you will be available for it. Because the dates and times are limited, rescheduling may not be possible.

    If the college is closed due to inclement weather on the day you are scheduled to test, your test will be rescheduled. You will be responsible for calling the Testing Center to schedule a new time.

  3. The cost of the TEAS test is approximately $65 and must be paid with a major credit/debit card at the time you take the test.
  4. The program director encourages you to test early as reviewing of test scores and completed applications begins early.
  5. The test is given online through ATI Testing. Study guides are available on their website or in the NRCC bookstore for $48 plus tax. NRCC Workforce Development offers TEAS Prep courses. Learn more about the courses at Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) and call 540-674-3600, ext. 3613 if you are interested in taking the courses.
  6. If the college is closed due to inclement weather on the day you are scheduled to test, you will be allowed to reschedule. You will be responsible for calling the Divison of Arts & Sciences to reschedule.

If you want to use a previous year’s TEAS score, please let Kassey Hall know so she can make sure she has a copy of this score in your folder. Remember that you can test once per year.

Contact Kassey Hall if additional information is needed.
