Nurse Practice Act is a set of state laws that govern specific aspects of the nursing profession. The act addresses common issues such as establishing the composition and scope of authority for the board of nursing, defining the practice of professional, practical or vocational nursing and advanced practice nursing, setting the requirements to obtain a nursing license, limiting use of the nurse title and listing the grounds for discipline against a nurse’s license.

Most public libraries should have a copy of the state statute books which should have a copy each individual states act, as they do vary by state. Be sure to get a copy of the most current version and check for the latest amendments that may not be included in the format you’re using.
