Florida Issues A New Nursing CE Requirement

There will be a new CE requirement for Renewals beginning in 2017: Recognizing Impairment in the Workplace. The requirement becomes effective August 1, 2017, then every other biennium thereafter (every 4 years).

Registered Nursing Group 1, with a License Expiration Date of April 30, 2018, will be the first group required to have the new CE. Licensed Practical Nurses, with a License Expiration Date of July 31, 2019, will then be required to have the new CE.
