  • » Entrance Exam

    Prior to scheduling your entrance examination, it is highly recommended that you go to www.atitesting.com and order an examination study guide in a package with 2 practice examinations for a total of $88.00 (prices subject to change). Make sure that you order the study guide and practice examinations for the ATI TEAS Examination. Do not order a version that is located at Amazon, etc., as it is not the official study guide and does not cover the same content.  I recommend beginning to prepare at least one month prior to sitting for your examination.

    You will need to sign up for the entrance examination with Mrs. Bundrant by calling 830-792-7481 or email crwoolery@schreiner.edu. Next, you will need to go to the Business Office on campus and pay $105 for the examination. Be sure to tell them this is for the BSN Entrance Examination Fee as it goes in a special account. You can either pay cash, check or by credit card. You will need to bring a copy of your receipt the day of the examination along with a photo ID.

    All entrance examinations will be in M212. You must arrive 15 minutes early to get signed on your computer, turn off your cell phone, place personal items in the front of the room and receive instructions. Please note that you are unable to leave the examination area after the exam begins, so you need to make a comfort stop prior to testing.  There is a limit of two attempts per admission cycle on the ATI TEAS Entrance Examination for admission to the SU BSN program.

    Fall 2016-2017 Examination Schedule
