2021 ATI TEAS Blueprint Update: An Overview.
The ATI TEAS (Version 7) will now be released in June 2022. Please continue to check this site for updates as we continue to enhance the new ATI TEAS 7 proctored exam. To help you prepare, we’ve created an Executive Summary of the findings that will drive the changes to this blueprint update, as well as a comparison chart of the current and future blueprints.
ATI recently conducted research with subject matter experts in nursing education, math, science, reading, and English to ensure the blueprint reflects evolving Common Core State Standards, nursing, and allied health program criteria. These experts were recruited nationally and represent all program types.
This intensive, multi-phased research project began during Summer 2020 and was completed in early 2021.
During its 20-year existence, the TEAS has undergone 6 blueprint reviews and revisions. The current blueprint was developed in 2015, released in 2016, and has proven to be a reliable admissions tool.
Specifically, nursing and allied health programs have relied on it to:
- Evaluate applicants’ academic preparedness for nursing studies
- Reduce attrition
- Increase student retention.
