Are you a practicing health professional? All practicing health professionals in Florida are required to maintain a valid license. The licenses are issued upon successful completion of testing, usually after a course of study has been completed and valid for a period of time. When the license expires, it will be up to you, the licensed individual, to renew said license. The Florida Health Center offers many convenient renewal options for your licensing needs.
