Nurse Practice Act Test

The Nurse Practice Act Test you are about to take was developed in 2006 from the Statutes of the Arizona State Board of Nursing.  It consists of 50 multiple-choice items covering areas of the Nurse Practice Act considered essential to safe nursing practice in Arizona.  The test may be used as a teaching-learning tool for nursing students, nurses new to practice in Arizona, and nurses desiring additional education on 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.

This test is the exclusive property and of the Board. Use of this test by the public is limited to educational purposes only. Any person taking this test agrees to the following:
