go to the florida board of nursing site:


on the frequent questions it says:

q: can i apply for a nursing license in florida if i graduated from regents (excelsior) college?

a: licensed practical nurses who had integrated clinical and theory in their practical nursing program, and subsequently graduated from regents (excelsior) college, may apply for licensure in florida. non-lpn's may apply only if they were enrolled in the regents (excelsior) college program on or before august 10, 1994.

also georgia will only issue a license by reciprocity for excelsior graduates.

since you are already an rn there should be no problem but contact the board of nursing for any clarification.
