    Someone asked if nursing classes count for CEU's and the answer is yes. When I last checked one 3 hour nursing class was all that was needed to meet the CEU requirement as far as the total 24 hrs; but of course there are specific CEU's required by Florida.

    Hi guys! I am a new RN in Florida and was endorsed by Saipan BON. The FLorida BON gave me temporary Fl license to be renewed this October with requirement of 2 hrs of Medical error only. Do you think I need to complete all the 25 hours or just their specefic requirement of 2 hours of Medication error. thanks!

    I would like to look into diabetes ed. How do you add that certification to your credentials? Is there a good online course?

    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.
