Free Nursing Practice Test: Legal Terms in Health Care

Legal issues abound in health care professions. This 18-question nursing practice test is geared toward those studying nursing in North Carolina; however, many of the terms may be used in other places and in other careers.

The questions contain examples that highlight various legal terms associated with those who work in health care. Many of the examples could be classified under several different terms. Choose the term that is best highlighted by the example.

This practice test should not be considered legal advice - it is for informational purposes only.

Directions:

I hope you find this resource to be helpful. I add information to my blog regularly, so check back to the Student Survive 2 Thrive blog frequently for additional practice tests, flash cards, conversion charts, math helpers, articles, and more.
