The board of nursing of each state has been formed by their respective state government.
They control and manage nursing practice in their own state.
It’s their duty to ensure the safe practice of nursing by formulating standards and rules and issuing licenses to qualified nurses.
However, the structure and powers granted to each nursing board vary from state to state.
Due to this variation, the nurses are required to know about the nurse practice act and other nursing pre-requisites of the state they are working in.
