CEU filing exemption for ARNPs

Posted almost 4 years ago by Arlene Wright

The Florida BON Executive Director, Mr. Joe Baker, has confirmed that ARNPs who are nationally certified through one of two methods (National Commission for Certifying Agencies or the Accreditation Board for Specialty Nursing Certification) may be eligible to be exempt from the Florida CE requirement for license renewal.

In order to qualify, you must go to (the basic account is free) and log in. If you don't already have an account, you must register for you. Once you're in the system, follow the links to "Report Hours/Exemption". Follow the prompts and add your certification document. Your exempt status should be reflected during your next license renewal application.

Many thanks to Mr. Baker for clarifying the process and informing us about this exemption at the Annual FNPN Conference this past weekend!
