Alaska Board of Nursing

Statutes and Regulations

Alaska Statutes are passed by the legislature. Regulations (also called the Alaska Administrative Code) are rules adopted by the board to implement, interpret, and make specific the statutes. Both statutes and regulations have the force of law.

AS 08.68 and regulations 12 AAC 44 specifically govern nursing practice. AS 08.01 - 08.03 and regulations 12 AAC 02 apply to all professions regulated by the division.
