The Board

Posted in Latest News on May 10, 2013.

The Board of Nursing plays an integral role in health care regulation as the board members and staff interact regularly with other nursing affiliated groups in Florida, as well as the National Council of State Boards of Nursing.

The board is made up of 13 members: seven Registered Nurses who have been engaged in the practice of professional nursing at least four years (one must be an advanced registered nurse practitioner, one must be a nurse executive, and one must be a nurse educator member of an approved program); three Licensed Practical Nurses who have been engaged in the practice of practical nursing at least four years; three consumer members who have never been connected with the practice of nursing. All board members must be Florida residents and one must be at least 60 years old.
