FL certified nurses are exempt from continuing ed!

The Florida Board of Nursing (BON) updated their continuing education requirements to exempt certified nurses from most required courses.

What is a certified nurse?

The Florida Board of Nursing announced that, “A nurse who is certified by a health care specialty program accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies or the Accreditation Board for Specialty Nursing Certification is exempt from continuing education requirements.”

Please note: The CE exemption based on certification does not apply to the 3 hr Safe and Effective Prescription of Controlled Substances course requirement or the 2 hr Human Trafficking course requirement.

This must be reported to the Department’s tracking system powered by CE Broker. The exemption must be applied each biennium.

We offer a $14 Safe and Effective Prescription of Controlled Substances course link: Safe and Effective

Take our $12 Human Trafficking course link: Human Trafficking

Not Certified? We have a Complete Package (link) option for nurses!

Florida certified RN will be required to complete only the 2-hour human trafficking course and Florida certified APRN will be required to complete the 2-hour Human Trafficking and 3-hour Safe and Effective Prescription of Controlled Substances course.

The Florida Board of Nursing announced that, “A nurse who is certified by a health care specialty program accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies or the Accreditation Board for Specialty Nursing Certification is exempt from continuing education requirements.”

If you’re a certified nurse, you must elect to receive the exemption and reduce your required biannual continuing education by applying the exemption in CE Broker.  Read and save this blog post (link) with step-by-step instructions on applying the exemption.

You’ll want to save this information because you have to reapply for the exemption at each renewal.

“I don’t have a DEA number, but I learned so much from this course. It was great.” – Laurie, APRN

“This was a well-written course with helpful course materials and exam items that focused on the main points as opposed to asking us to recall odd statistics, etc. Very well-written and enjoyable – helpful for practice as I am fairly new to having a DEA number in the State of Florida. End of course exam was fair and well-written.” – Jana, APRN
