No, the word 'turned' is the past participle, past tense of the verb to turn. The past participle of the verb also functions as an adjective.

Examples:

Jack turned his head when he heard the door open. (verb)

The turned edge keeps the fabric from unraveling. (adjective)

The word 'turn' is both a verb and a noun.

Examples:

When you get to the next light, turn right. (verb)

When you get to the next light, make a right turn. (noun)

Each of you will have a turn to speak. (noun)

The house was built at the turn of the century. (noun)
