Nurse Practice Act Test


The Nurse Practice Act Test you are about to take was developed in 2006 by the Education Team from the statutes and rules of the Arizona State Board of Nursing Nurse Practice Act and revised in 2019 by a team of nursing faculty and nursing students. It consists of 50 multiple-choice items covering areas of the Nurse Practice Act considered essential to safe nursing practice in Arizona; the disciplinary process, professionalism, scope of practice, delegation, and board responsibilities.


The test may be used as a teaching-learning tool for nursing students, nurses new to practice in Arizona, and nurses desiring additional education in the practice of nursing in Arizona. The Board or a nurse-manager may also direct a nurse with a knowledge deficit in this area to take the test. The test may be taken with or without referring to the Nurse Practice Act. After completion of the test, your score will be sent to your e-mail address.
