Florida CNA license renewal

Your Florida CNA license is good for 2 years. The Board of Nursing sends out renewal letters to your last known address. It is your responsibility to keep your address current with the Nursing Assistant Registry. We report credits to CEBroker, the state's auditing system.

Check your license, some CNAs will expire 5/31/2015

If you do not renew your license/certificate by 5/31/2015 it will become delinquent and you will be required to pay a delinquent fee of $50, in addition to the renewal fee. The renewal must be postmarked by 5/31/2015, if you are mailing it.


How many hours do I need to renew my CNA license?
Each certified nursing assistant must complete a minimum of 12 hours of in-service training each calendar year. For candidates certified during the calendar year, the minimum in-service hours required shall be prorated at the rate of 1.0 hours per month from the month of initial certification to the end of the calendar year.

For example: You were licensed in June 2014
June 2014 until December 2014 = 7 months, therefore, 7 hours of training or ceu's.
January 2015 until May 2015 =5 months, therefore, 5 hours of ceu's.
For a TOTAL of 12 hours of ceu's for license renewal that must be completed by May 31, 2015 before you renew your license.

Contact hours = hours of in-service = continuing education = ceu's = credits = all the same meaning.

In addition, the Agency for Healthcare Administration and the Department of Elderly Affairs have specific in-service requirements for CNAs who work in certain facilities or agencies.

Exemptions from in-service training

A certified nursing assistant is exempt from the in-service education requirement if the certified nursing assistant was on active duty with the Armed Forces for 6 months or more during the calendar year, and was in good standing with the Board at the time active duty began. However, this exemption will not arise on the basis of the performance of short periods of active duty (such as summer or weekend drills) by a member of the Armed Forces Reserves. Duty in the United States Public Health Service is not considered duty in the Armed Forces.

A certified nursing assistant who is the spouse of a member of the Armed Forces and was caused to be absent from Florida due to the spouse’s duties with the Armed Forces shall be exempt from in-service hour requirements. The certified nursing assistant must show satisfactory proof of the absence and the spouse’s military status.

Each certified nursing assistant must retain in-service compliance records for a period of 4 years and submit records to the Board if required for auditing. FMES will keep a record of your in-service hours, that are completed on our website, for 4 years.
