Florida License Requirements

Students enrolled in the Associate of Science in Nursing program are not “registered” by Advance Science International College upon completion and graduation of the nursing program. Hence, all nursing graduates must follow Florida State Registered Nurse Licensing requirements. The Florida Department of Health is responsible for the regulation of health practitioners for the preservation of the health, safety, and welfare of the public. One of the main tasks of Florida Board of Nursing (BON) is licensing all nursing graduates as Registered Nurses. BON Licensing and Regulation section provides information to the public relating to professional, facility, and permit licensing along with information on enforcement. All additional costs involved in Florida NCLEX-RN licensing are solely the student responsibility.
