All Pre-Nursing and Nursing Students who need to take the TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) as part of the eligibility process for Level One Placement (NUR 2950-2971).

The TEAS is a computer-administered timed test created and maintained by ATI Nursing Education consisting of 170 multiple-choice questions divided into four sections: Reading, Mathematics, Science, and English & Language Usage.  Examinees are allotted 209 minutes.  For students who took the TEAS exam elsewhere, you will need to log into ATI and request scores to be sent to "HAWAII PACIFIC U" through their online system.  There is a cost associated with this service.

In addition, all nursing applicants must log into ATI and download the best score report within the past year.  This score report MUST then be manually uploaded to NursingCAS. Please contact the College of Nursing and Health Sciences or your Nursing Advisor for deadlines and assistance.

The TEAS FEE IS $90.00 and must be paid at one of the HPU bookstores (Downtown or Hawaii Loa Campus) or by credit or debit card through HPU’s ONLINE PAYMENT SYSTEM PRIOR to your test date.  Include your name and HPU student ID# on the receipt, and bring it with you on exam day.
