Florida RN's please advise

  1. Hi

    I missed the July date for renewing my license in Florida.

    Is it $65. US or if late fee $120. US?

    Can I renew on line without further penalty (despite the cost).

    Many thanks,

    Sarah

    fla: renewal information
    per website, online renewal not possible for expiration date 7/31/06.

    as long as not actively practicing in fla, should not be significant issue. will need to pay penalty. might need to give bon a call.

    anytime one is actively practicing on expired license, government can take all moneys back for patients cared for while license expired (medicare/medicaid paitents), fine facility and fine you and suspend your license. it is up to lpn/rn to maintain active license and notify bos usually within 10 days of adress change. cost local hospital $60,000 and rn $1,500 to repair license damange.

    part of my job as homecare manager to maintain 5,000 physician license database along with my professional staff...pretty bad when you call dr to tell him license expired. had to report nj doc once when still didn't have active license 3 months after i notified office mgr so therfore unable to use doctor as patients homecare physician cause agency would not get paid and explain it to patient.
