Free Nursing Practice Test: Infection Prevention

This free nursing practice test includes 15 questions related to basic infection control information, including common medical terms, the chain of infection, and ways to prevent the spread of microorganisms, including those that are multidrug-resistant organisms. The information is current at the present time for nurses and nursing assistants in North Carolina, but information may be correct in other areas and careers as well.

Directions:
  1. Click on the first graphic to enlarge.
  2. Click on the slide to advance to the next one. (Click on the thumbnail at the bottom of the screen if that does not work.)
I hope you find this resource to be helpful to you. Visit my Student Survive 2 Thrive blog for additional practice tests, flash cards, conversion charts, articles, and more.
