Change in ATI TEAS Scoring Requirement for Entry to Nursing Program - Effective April 1, 2017

Students working on entry requirements for the nursing program at DMACC should take note of a change in scoring requirements for the ATI TEAS as of April 1, 2017.

On and after that date, students will need to meet a scoring requirement of 60% or greater on the Adjusted Individual Total Score. The total score must include the four content areas: Reading, Mathematics, English and Language Usage, and Science. Students will no longer need to meet separate cut scores for each of the content areas.
