Do I need malpractice insurance to be licensed?

APRNs practicing in Florida are required to be covered by malpractice insurance unless they qualify for an exemption listed on the Financial Responsibility Form.

The Financial Responsibility form must be completed and filed with the board office before APRN certification is granted. This form is included in the initial application and is also available separately on the Resources page.
