I am trying to cite Northern Mariana Islands Nurse Practice Act, and am unsure as to how to go about it. I retrieved the act from this website: https://www.ncsbn.org/pl14-62.pdf Thank you!
I did reference the APA manual on page 220, but it still seems unclear to me.

Thanks for providing the link. It was very helpful! The link is to the Act that created the Nurse Practice Act, but the actual statute, or law, is what is generally cited, because it is the most current information. Based on what you gave me, I was able to locate the statute. To see the statute, go to http://www.cnmilaw.org/frames/CommonwealthCode.html . From here you will have to drill down. Click the little + beside the folder icon for Title 3: Human Resources. Then click the + by Division 2 Health and then Chapter 3 Nurse Practice Act.

I would cite it like this:

Nurse Practice Act of 2003, 3 CMC §§ 2301-2319 (2016).

Thanks for asking a librarian.
