Laws & Rules of the Board of Nursing – Florida Requirement

Less than three years ago, the Florida Board of Nursing board imposed disciplinary actions against more than 500 nurses, which resulted in limitations, suspensions, and voluntary surrender of licenses. Had they been aware of the pertinent information on the nursing-related rules in Florida, they could have avoided going through the difficult ordeal. Enroll in this course and get the information you need to stay on track, as far as Florida laws of nursing are concerned. 

This course is equivalent to two contact hours. It can be accessed through the convenience of a mobile phone, laptop, computer, and other similar devices.
