Licensure Reciprocity Resources
Florida has several provisions for military service members, veterans and spouses seeking to obtain business and professional licenses in the state. These provisions are designed to ease the transition for military families who frequently move due to military assignments.
One such provision is the Military Spouse Licensure Recognition Program, which allows spouses of active-duty military members to obtain temporary professional licenses in certain fields, such as teaching or nursing, if they hold a valid license from another state. This program is intended to allow military spouses to continue their careers even if they move to a state where their professional license is not recognized.
In addition, Florida provides expedited processing of professional license applications for military service members, veterans and military spouses who have recently relocated to the state. This allows military families to quickly obtain the licenses they need to work in their chosen professions.
