CNA License Renewal Florida

Every two years, a Certified Nurse Assistant, or CNA, renews their license in order to maintain compliance with state law in Florida.

As long as they have provided CNA-related services for monetary compensation within the last 24 months, they are eligible to renew their license online and remain in the CNA registry.

Is it time for your certified nursing assistant license renewal?

Florida CNA License Renewal

It is easy to complete the CNA license renewal process entirely online in the state of Florida as long as you have a credit card or debit card to pay the fees associated with renewal.

To complete your CNA license Florida renewal, do the following:

  • Find your way to and then click the button that says, “Renew a License.”
  • When prompted, enter your Personal Identifying Information to log in.
  • You will be prompted to confirm that your MQA services account email address is correct. If it’s not, update it. If it is, confirm and continue.
  • Once you are in the dashboard, you will see a button that says Renew My License ONLY if your license is set to expire within the next 90 days. If you do not see this button, come back in a few days.
  • If you see the button, click it. Follow the prompts to pay your fees and update your information. If you are late and the processing option is still available, you will be charged a delinquency fee on top of the usual fees.

If you do not have a debit card or credit card, you can complete the renewal process online and then print out the form and mail it in with a check or money order to:

Division of Medical Quality Assurance

P.O. Box 6320

Tallahassee, FL 32314-6320

Once processed, it may take up to 10 days for your request to be processed, your license to be printed, and everything to be mailed to you.

Note: Make sure to complete the renewal process by midnight on the night of the expiration of your CNA license in order to maintain licensure without interruption. If the deadline is missed, the license is placed into delinquent status. If it is not remedied, it will ultimately become null and void.

What if I Have Not Worked as a CNA in the Last 24 Months?

Florida nursing assistants who have not been actively working in the last two years will still have a license on file, but it will be marked as inactive. Should two biennial renewal cycles pass without the CNA taking steps to bring the license back into active status, it will likely be necessary to sit for a competency exam or reapply for their license and follow the current rules and regulations for gaining licensure in the state of Florida.
