I have a CNA in another state. Can I transfer it to Florida?
It depends, but the answer is usually yes. Call the Board of Nursing at 850-245-4567 for information on this. Your license or certificate must still be valid in the other state in order to transfer.

It depends, but the answer is usually yes. You would have to call the Board of Nursing from the new state to find out.

Having experience as a CNA or as any health care worker is always a plus before starting nursing school. For most nursing schools, having a valid CNA certificate will give you additional points to gain admittance. Each nursing school is different though, and you should do research before taking an Express Training class.

For the exam prep class, there are 3 ways you can take it. There’s a 1-week class which goes M-F, 8 am-4 pm each day. There’s a 2-week class which is M-Th, 5 pm-10 pm each night.
