I was thinking that they told us NOT to study for this one. They want to see what our knowledge is like going into the program for the first time. I wouldn't even have a clue What to study. Orientation was the first time I'd even heard of "ATI" (not even sure what it stands for).
i remember that the nursing office people said that it would most likely be a math exam and there is no "passing" score per say (also mentioned in the orientation) ... the only purpose of the test is to find out, how far long/short majority of the nursing students' math skills are. . . i suppose you can review your math skills but they never mentioned anything about a study guide.
ati is a company that specializes in giving out standardized exams, also reviewers (teas, nclex. . . etc.). i guess they're the ones that csn hired to handle their ati exam on jan 6th. ati exam is required to be taken with the rest of the accepted nursing incoming class for the semester. they will tell us when & what room we're supposed to take it and everyone takes it on jan 6th. it can't be "proctored" at a different school or at a preferred time.
I'm sure it's probably 9, but I've just been thinking for the past month 7:30 so when I went and looked at the paper today and it said 9 I started freaking out! I'm sure I just got it wrong though. I'm going at 8:30. Sorry if I caused any unnecessary stress.
Haha!! Okay...that's good to know! Maybe you were remembering how orientation was at 8 and so most people were there by 7:30. I had to keep checking my paper as well to make sure it really said 9! Don't forget your yellow receipt for the exam!!
