    Do CNA's need CEUs? I was reading the post on the doh site and it only talked about RN's and LPN's

    "Do CNA's need CEUs?..." I'm not sure about CNA's but I bet the state link above may help, if you're in FL, that is.

    My question to y'all about FL state RN requirements is this~Do the classes just have to be on the general subjects of HIV and/or Aids, the prevention of medical errors, and domestic violence, OR are they actually a specific class that you must take by these titles? Do you get what I mean? Can we choose any ANCC accredited classes on these topics or is it one specific class on each topic named, e.g. HIV/AIDS, Domestic Violence, Prevention of Medical Errors, etc.? Maybe, I'll call the number I noticed listed for the state above. Thanks all. nurse:

    Does anyone know how many hours a Florida CNA has to work before their license expires? I just received mine March of this year and am still trying to get a CNA job!! I already checked the Florida Board of nursing website and the information there is confusing.

    Please, help me to understand how all these CE units work. I've been at BON website and it is still not clear for me.
    I got my Florida license in 2010, it is my first license after graduation. I did med errors and HIV as it is required for initial license. My license will expire in 2012. How many CE hours do I need to finish by 2012? What classes are required and what are elective? Can I start do them now or it is better to do them right before expiration? Please, help me to put it straight in my mind.
