Licensing forms an important part of any nursing care practitioner, The nursing personnel therefore needs to ensure that they are up to date with the licensing requirements, scope of practice and any other significant requirements that are effectively developed by the nursing governing body within a given jurisdiction Within the state of Florida, there are vital rules and regulations, which have been put in place to provide a greater focus and understanding on the legal scope of practice of nursing practitioner.
In the provided set of rules and regulations, there are certain regulations that I found very much interesting, The first interesting regulation that I found within the Florida nursing practitioner rules and regulation is that there are continuing credits which must be completed biannually where completion of at least three hours on safe and effective recommendation of controlled substances as well as a two hour course on human trafficking.
The human trafficking aspect is very much interesting especially considering the scope of operation and their responsibilities.
Nursing practitioners do not need to develop a crucial focus on human trafficking since it is beyond their operational environment. This means that the inclusion of human trafficking among the compulsory courses that nursing practitioners need to undertake is surprising and an interesting choice It is an obligation of the statewide professional association of physicians are accredited to provide these courses, The designated accreditation in this case include the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, the American Medical Association Physician’s Recognition Award Category 1 credit and the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists, which may be offered in a distance format.
The three requirements that have been based upon in this case are critical in the renewal of the state license hence should be clearly remembered.
