As a course requirement in every level of the program, students will be required to take an ATI Exit Exam. The purpose of these exams is to analyze students’ ability to apply key concepts taught during the semester. In Level 4, all students are required to take the ATI Exit Exam to evaluate their readiness for the NCLEX examination. Students are responsible for the cost of these exams. Included in this cost is access to the ATI resources, case studies and practice exams, which are a valuable addition to your learning.

The ATI Resource fee must be paid every semester enrolled, regardless if you are a readmitted student and did not take the ATI Exit Exam in the previous semester. The ATI Resource fee not only pays for the exam, it gives students continued access to the resources per semester. There are no exceptions or exemptions. All students enrolled must pay every semester.  Students with a voucher from Capital Idea or Workforce will upload a copy of their voucher for this requirement each semester.
