Can I use hours I have earned in another state?

Yes. Continuing education (CE) courses approved by a state or national nursing organization empowered to accredit CE standards can be used, pursuant to Rule 64B9-5.004, F.A.C., unless the offering falls into the mandatory CE category. All mandatory courses must be offered by a Florida Board of Nursing approved provider.
