TEAS Testing Sites in California





Where Can You Take the TEAS in California?

The Test of Essential Academic skills (TEAS) is a multiple-choice test, aimed at evaluating the academic skills of prospective nursing students. All the test takers are required to register with the ATI website before taking the test. On registration, each candidate will get a unique username and password which must be provided at the time of the test. However, the ATI registration alone is not sufficient to take the test.

There is a separate registration required, in order to take the TEAS test. During the TEAS test registration, a student can choose his/her preferred test location, date and timings for the test from the available options. If you live in California or planning to take the test in California, this article will be helpful to you. You shall get a general idea of the TEAS testing sites in California and test registration procedures followed at these centers.

What Should You know about the CA TEAS Test Centers Before Test Registration?

As ATI conducts all the TEAS tests across the country, the question format, pattern, syllabus, scoring etc. will remain the same, no matter in which testing centre you take the test. However, in order to choose a test location in California, check if you have these details in hand, before registering for the test:

  • Which version of TEAS test do you want to take?
  • Which format of the TEAS test are you comfortable with - the paper and pencil or the computerized format?
  • In which college/institution do you wish to pursue your nursing degree program?
  • Is that particular college/institution one of the TEAS testing sites in California as well?
  • Is the testing centre compatible with your desired TEAS test version and format?
  • What should you do to report the test scores to your college/institution?

Once you are prepared with the required details, you can proceed with the TEAS test registration. It can either be done through the ATI website or directly through the individual test centers. In the latter case, the test site will help you in scheduling the test.

How Can the ATI Website Help You in Registering with a CA TEAS Test Centre?

The details about TEAS testing sites in California, available through the ATI website (www.atitesting.com) are:

  • The available date, timings and test centers in the following CA cities: Los Angeles, Marysville, Napa, Oakland, Orange, Roseville, Sacramento, Salinas, Turlock and Ukiah.

  • The location and full addresses of the TEAS testing sites in California. For example; M.L. King Hall, California State University, 5151, State University Drive, Los Angeles, California, 90032.

  • The version and format of the TEAS test that the test centre provides. For example; TEAS version V test, computerized test format.

  • The requirements that the student needs to carry on the test day like valid photo ID, ATI ID etc.

  • Important instructions to be followed before and during the test.

  • Whether a student needs to purchase a TEAS transcript or not, in order to send the test results to the institution where they are planning to apply.

However, the limitation while registering for the TEAS test through the ATI website is that only a few selected TEAS testing sites in California are specified in the website. For this reason, the ATI TEAS test FAQ page suggests the students, to take the test at the college/institution, where they plan to apply for the nursing program.

How Do You Go about Registering Directly with a CA TEAS Test Centre?

Do not get alarmed if you are not able to find your school of choice listed as one of TEAS testing centers in the ATI website. In such a case, you must conduct an online search for your school of nursing, get the telephone number of your school and contact them directly for a test appointment. Most of the TEAS testing sites in California do the scheduling of your test over the phone, in which case you can make the payment on the day of the test.

You must remember to read the instructions given by your test centre carefully. It is good to make a check-list of all the materials you are required to carry on the day of the test. Also, note that some test centers ask the students to enter the exam hall, 30 minutes prior to the commencement of the test, though it is 15 minutes at most places. Hence, you must keep the time factor in mind, in order to be on time for the test.
