Per the Florida Board of Nursing
Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) are renewed by the department in two groups:
Group 1 – current license will expire at midnight, Eastern Standard Time, May 31, 2023. Licenses that expired May 31, 2021 will go null and void on June 01, 2023 if not renewed.
Group 2 – current licenses will expire at midnight, Eastern Standard Time, May 31, 2022. Licenses that expired May 31, 2020 will go null and void on June 01, 2022 if not renewed.
In order to renew the CNA license at the end of the two year renewal cycle, CNAs are required to perform nursing-related services for monetary compensation within the last 24 consecutive months in order to remain on the registry.
Licensees who fail to meet these requirements must reapply for licensure and comply with current laws and rules. Licensees who have become Null and Void or elected to Voluntarily Relinquish their CNA license must reapply for licensure and meet current requirements.
