2013 Florida Statutes
467.013 Inactive status.—A licensee may request that his or her license be placed in an inactive status by making application to the department and paying a fee.
(1) An inactive license may be renewed for one additional biennium upon application to the department and payment of the applicable biennium renewal fee. The department shall establish by rule procedures and fees for applying to place a license on inactive status, renewing an inactive license, and reactivating an inactive license. The fee for any of these procedures may not exceed the biennial renewal fee established by the department.
(2) Any license that is not renewed by the end of the biennium established by the department automatically reverts to involuntary inactive status unless the licensee has applied for voluntary inactive status. Such license may be reactivated only if the licensee meets the requirements for reactivating the license established by department rule.
(3) A midwife who desires to reactivate an inactive license shall apply to the department, complete the reactivation application, remit the applicable fees, and submit proof of compliance with the requirements for continuing education established by department rule.
(4) Each licensed midwife whose license has been placed on inactive status for more than 1 year must complete continuing education hours as a condition of reactivating the inactive license.
(5) The licensee shall submit to the department evidence of participation in 10 hours of continuing education, approved by the department and clinically related to the practice of midwifery, for each year of the biennium in which the license was inactive. This requirement is in addition to submitting evidence of completing the continuing education required for the most recent biennium in which the licensee held an active license.
