The original of the protocol must be filed at the ARNP’s practice location site(s) within 30 days of renewal of the practitioner’s license and a copy of the protocol shall be kept at the site of practice of each party to the protocol. Any alterations to the protocol or amendments should be signed by the ARNP and a Florida-licensed medical doctor, osteopathic physician, or dentist and kept at the site of practice of each party to the protocol within 30 days of the alteration.

The Nurse Practitioner who applies for a DEA registration should be prepared to submit a copy of the protocol via email or fax after the DEA has contacted you.

After the termination of the relationship between the ARNP and the supervising professional, each party is responsible for insuring that a copy of the protocol is maintained for future reference for a period of four years.
