If your wife's license is active, she should have no problem transferring
Not necessarily so.
Each state sets its own requirements for licensure. Having an active license in good standing in one state does not always qualify an applicant for the same in another. The reason is that some states require very little to maintain a license. IL is one of those states. CEUs are a brand new requirement in IL, and current practice is not required.
As such, an IL RN endorsing his/her license may run into problems with other states that have more stringent requirements such as current practice.
I moved from IL with a current license in good standing, but had not actively practiced in over 5 years. NE would not license me until I took a refresher course.
I would encourage the OP to check with the FL BON. It is likely that either re-taking NCLEX or a refresher would be acceptable.
