Verify Nursing License Florida
Nursing license verification is the first step in protecting your patients from unlicensed practitioners. It is important to know that a Florida nurse holds an active license when treating patients, as well as confirming the license of other health care professionals you work with such as social workers or nursing home administrators.
Call or visit your State Board of Nursing.
If you want to verify a nurse’s license, call or visit your State Board of Nursing. The board may be able to provide you with a verification letter for the nurse in question. You can also request a verification letter for the facility where that particular nurse works, or for a date range during which that individual held his/her Florida nursing license.
