Florida Laws and Rules Governing Nursing Practice

  • 15Steps


This course discusses the standards for the safe practice of nursing in the state of Florida as written by the Florida Board of Nursing in accordance with Florida Statutes and Administrative Code. Standards for nursing education and practice are established through laws known as Nurse Practice Acts (NPAs) enacted in each state or territory. The Florida Nurse Practice Act designates the Florida Board of Nursing as the authoritative body to define and regulate the nursing practice of every nurse in every role in the state. The Florida Board of Nursing is responsible for ensuring that nurses who practice in Florida are competent, safe, skilled, and knowledgeable about the standards set forth in Florida’s scope of practice for nurses. In this course, you will also learn the related terminologies used in the Nurse Practice Act, the different levels of nursing practice and scopes of practice for each, and the possible nursing violations and related disciplinary actions.
