Board of nursing if made up of eleven members appointed by the governor. Of the eleven six members are registered nurses (RN) and includes at least one nurse practitioner (NP), clinical nurse specialist, or certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA). Another member of the board should be a nursing assistant or nursing educator, two members representing the public, and two licensed practical nurses (LPN).

The State Board of Nursing Registration and Nursing Education, which was later renamed the Arizona State Board of Nursing (AZBN), was created in 1952. It is the boards duty to promote safe and professional nursing practices in Arizona. Aside from nursing practice, the board also examens and approves educational programs for nurses. The AZBN follows guidelines set by the American Nurses Association (ANA) when developing standards of practice.


According to the ANA, standards of practice are developed by answering the following questions: who, what, where, when, and why (ANA, n.d). It is the nurse’s responsibility to stay on top of new standards and up to date of safe practice. Standards of practice aim for consistency in the nursing profession and decision making. According to Dynamic in Nursing the aim is that one nurse’s thinking, behavior, and direct actions will be like those of a different nurse in the same situation and with similar education (Green, 2018)
