 Barriers to Nursing Practice in Florida
A core barrier to nursing practice in Florida is the lack of recognition of nurses as primary care providers. While nurses have full practice authority and can practice independently in the state, they are still not recognized as primary health providers. Advanced practice registered nurses cannot practice independently in Florida until they accumulate at least 3,000 hours of experience while under the supervision of a physician (Florida Action Coalition, 2022). This requirement is a barrier to nursing practice.

The state action coalition continues to advocate for a reduction in the requirements for full practice authority for nurses. The coalition and nurses’ associations within the state advocate for a reduction in these provisions to ensure that more nurses can practice to alleviate the current physician shortage. The nursing advocates continue to lobby and develop action plans to reverse the current laws to allow increased practice.

The future of nursing is bright as nurses become primary care providers in different areas because of reforms and trends. The report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine show that nurses will play a critical role between now and 2030 to address health equity across the country by reducing the current disparities. State action coalitions like the one in Florida will play a critical role in helping nurses and stakeholders develop right interventions to meet the healthcare goals and attainment of health equity.
