The original of the protocol must be filed with the Board of Nursing 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 filed with the Board of Nursing within 30 days of the alteration.

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.

ARNPs can send a copy of their protocol by uploading the document through their Versa Online account at the following link:
