South Florida Council of Advanced Practice Nurses

Important change in protocol requirement

Posted 6 months ago by Vicky Stone-Gale

On Friday, June 23rd, Governor Rick Signed signed into law HB543. This bill contains language that changes our protocol requirements.

Effective immediately ARNPs in Florida will no longer have to file their protocol with the Board of Nursing! We will only be required to keep a signed copy on site.

Look for an update from the Board of Nursing with more details soon. 

FNPN is proud to have been the lead organization on the protocol piece of the bill. Our sincere appreciation goes to all those who helped get this important piece of legislation passed and especially to our lobbyists and the bill sponsors: 

Allison Carvajal, Rep. Pigman, and Sen. Grimsley.
