Course Overview

The Florida Board of Nursing (BON) is both a regulatory board and a state government agency. Its organization, structure, and responsibilities are contained within Chapter 64B9 of the Florida Administrative Code. The BON consists of 13 members whose chief responsibility is to implement and enforce state laws related to nursing licensure, practices, education and Florida nursing schools. The Florida Board of Nursing is a member of the National Council of State Boards of Nursing.

The overall mission of a nursing board is “to actively safeguard the health of the public through effective regulation of nursing care.” Nursing boards are legally responsible for enforcing their state’s nurse practice act. They are responsible for establishing standards for safe nursing care and issuing licenses to practice nursing. They monitor compliance with state laws and are empowered to take action against licensees who have exhibited unsafe nursing practice. Nursing boards oversee education requirements and rules for licensure and define the scope of nursing practice in their state (NCSBN, 2013a).

Customer Testimonial

Wasn't sure about earning my CEU's online, but after taking a few courses am happy that I chose AAACEU's. The articles were very relevant and it worked with my time frame well.
