When it says to turn, ordinarily you do that just as always - put the right needle in your left hand, and the (former) left needle in your right hand. If you have not reached the end of a row, this may seem unusual but the process is still the same except the (former) left still has stitches on it.

Just to be sure, I would like to see exactly what the pattern says, to figure out what is happening at this point. Could you post the complete instructions for these rows, beginning right after the purl row? (If you found it online, please give the URL.) It would give us some context to see what the pattern is saying.
