Free Nursing Practice Test: Vital Signs

Learning how to check vital signs is one of the most important skills a nursing assistant or nurse can develop. Accurate vital signs and knowing normal limits for vital signs is imperative in creating an appropriate care plan. This free practice test includes fifteen questions related to vital signs and is geared toward nurse aides in North Carolina; however, much of the information would be accurate in other places and for other healthcare professions as well.
