Florida Nurses, it’s time to check your license renewal date! There are different Nursing Groups who have different renewal dates. Those renewal dates are April 30th and July 31st. For all of you wonderful Nurses who are about to renew your license, CE Broker wants to give you a quick visual of all of your CE requirements. You don’t have any surprises when you are renewing your license. The following chart with renewal requirements included is the same for Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner, Registered Nurse, Clinical Nurse Specialist and Licensed Practical Nurse:
If this is your first time for license renewal, there are a few things to keep in mind:
- If you are initially licensed by examination during the current biennium, you are exempt from the general CEU requirements for the first renewal. You must complete 2 hours of medical error, 2 hours of laws and rules and 1 hour of HIV/AIDS (all must be taken from a Florida Board of Nursing approved provider).
- If you are initially licensed by endorsement during the current biennium and took the exam in another state within the biennium, you are exempt from general CEU hours. You must complete 2 hours of medical error, 2 hours laws and rules and 1 hour of HIV/AIDS (all must be taken from a Florida Board of Nursing approved provider).
- If you do not qualify for the exemption in your first renewal, you must complete 1 hour per month (not literally just used for calculation purposes) or partial month remaining in the biennium from the date the license was issued. These hours must include 2 hours of medical error, 2 hours laws and rules and 1 hour of HIV/AIDS (all must be taken from a Florida Board of Nursing approved provider)
