• Florida Nursing License: Your Key to Travel Nursing in Florida

    Dreaming about travel nursing jobs in Florida? It is easier than you might think. You can get your nursing license in Florida with the help of American Mobile.

    The team at American Mobile can help out of state nurses, and those in need of a Florida license renewal, by helping them obtain their RN licensure for travel nurse assignments.

    Starting with the job hunt and interview process, it is important for all nurses to apply with the Florida Board of Nursing. However, American Mobile’s recruitment and licensing experts can guide all nurses through the licensing process. As a matured travel nursing agency, American Mobile will help nurses complete all licensing requirements and help nurses start working in The Sunshine State—known for its gorgeous beaches, entertainment options and year-round recreation. American Mobile can even pay for the state licensing fees.

    How to Apply for a Florida Nursing License:

    RN’s and LPN’s are eligible to apply for Florida nurse licensure by endorsement:

    • If they hold a valid license to practice nursing in another state or U.S. territory, or
    • When they have successfully completed the State Board Test Pool Examination (SBTPE) or the NCLEX, or
    • When they have actively practiced nursing in another state, jurisdiction, or U.S. territory for 2 of the preceding 3 years without any criminal history or having his or her license acted against by any licensing authority.

    Applicants must:

    • Submit a license application with the appropriate fees, payable to the Florida Board of Nursing.
    • Schedule a fingerprint appointment with a Livescan service provider; once completed, fingerprints are submitted electronically to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
    • Contact licensing board(s) where their initial and active licenses are held and request verification be sent to the Florida Board of Nursing.

    *A fee of $110 is required for Florida licensure by endorsement; fees must also be paid to LiveScan service providers for fingerprinting.

    American Mobile travel nurses can qualify for reimbursement of all fees paid for their Florida RN license, and get help with the application process.

    How Long Does It Take to Get a Nursing License by Endorsement in Florida?

    After the state board has received all required documentation and fees, most nurses receive their Florida RN or LPN license within 4-5 weeks. Timing varies by seasonal demand. The state does not issue temporary licenses.

    Do You Have a Nursing Compact License?

    Florida is part of the Nurse Licensure Compact, which encompasses nearly 40 states. If a nurse claims another compact state as their primary state of residence, and has a multistate nursing license, they can pursue travel nursing jobs in Florida—without having to pay additional fees or obtaining another license. The Nursys system can verify if a nurse already holds a multistate nursing license.

    Requirements for Florida Nursing License Renewal

    Florida nursing licenses must be renewed every two years. The state licensing department will renew an RN or LPN license upon receipt of:

    • Completed CE requirements
    • Completed renewal application
    • Required fees – which vary based on license status and timing

    Reactivating a license from inactive or retired status requires additional fees and continuing education requirements.
