Florida nurse practitioners are required to complete a biannual continuing education course called, “The Safe and Effective Prescription of Controlled Substances.” This important three hour course is timely for nurse practitioners as Florida approved DEA licensing authority for advanced practice providers in 2017. The course is required for all nurse practitioners, even if they do not have a DEA license.
Florida Statue 464.012 covers the requirement for the type of continuing education provider who can supply this course:
464.012 must complete at least 3 hours of continuing education on the safe and effective prescription of controlled substances. Such continuing education courses must be offered by a statewide professional association of physicians in this state accredited to provide educational activities designated for the American Medical Association Physician’s Recognition Award Category 1 credit, the American Nurses Credentialing Center, the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists, or the American Association of Nurse Practitioners and may be offered in a distance learning format.
