If you have not renewed your license for two bienniums (4 years) and it is now Null and Void, you will need to apply for a new license by endorsement found in the applications section. This may be completed from your online account Login Option – MQAServices Portal (state.fl.us). Requirements for licensure may be found at Florida Board of Nursing » Licensed Practical Nurse & Registered Nurse by Endorsement – Licensing, Renewals & Information (floridasnursing.gov).
If your license was deactivated due to the issuance of a multistate license in another jurisdiction and your Florida license is past its renewal date, you will need to apply for licensure using Microsoft Word – Nursing Endorsement Application (floridasnursing.gov). You are not able to apply online.
If your license was deactivated due to the issuance of a multistate license in another jurisdiction and your Florida license expiration date is in the future please contact the Board at MQA.Nursing@flhealth.gov and include Updated-Multi-State Upgrade App 11.15.17.pdf (floridasnursing.gov) as well as proof of Florida residency.
