What If This Is My First Renewal?
There are a few things to remember if you renew your license for the first time.
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 errors, 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 on medical errors, 2 hours on laws and rules, and 1 hour on 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) remaining in the biennium from the date the license was issued. These hours must include 2 hours of medical errors, 2 hours of laws and rules, and 1 hour of HIV/AIDS (all must be taken from a Florida Board of Nursing-approved provider)
