43 Signed by Governor
Update from the Board of Nursing
HB 543 Regulation of Health Care Practitioners Effective Date: June 23, 2017
This bill requires that an established protocol be maintained at the location or locations at which the Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP) practices. It also removes the requirement that the Board of Nursing review protocols and submit uncompliant protocols to the Florida Department of Health.
So effective immediately, ARNPs no longer need to file protocols with the Board of Nursing. ARNPs must maintain a signed protocol at the locations where the ARNP practices.
