Florida CNA Renewal Instructions

All CNAs must renew their certifications periodically, and Florida is no exception. Every state has different renewal requirements, so check with your state CNA Registry (see below) if you live somewhere other than Florida. But if you DO live in Florida…and you got a notification from the state that it is time to renew but you aren’t sure what to do…then THIS video is for you!
