There are a number of reasons that an active nurse may have had their license revoked. They may have been accused of negligence or had a complaint filed against them, or they may have accidentally forgotten to renew their license, and it lapsed.

Reasons a License May Have Been Revoked
The first step for getting your license reinstated is to understand why it was revoked, as this can change the course of action you will need to take. Some reasons may include:
- Did not renew the license in time and it lapsed.
- Engaged in negligence.
- Did not meet the expected standard of care.
- Engaged in sexual misconduct.
Reinstating a License
You need to be aware of why your license was revoked because the steps you take for reinstatement can vary. For example, if your license is inactive because you failed to renew it in time, you can still have it reinstated after it has been placed in delinquent status. You just need to take steps to renew your delinquent status online and meet the requirements for renewing your license, including completing any continuing education requirements and paying licensing fees.
If the Florida Board of Nursing suspended your license due to professional misconduct, you can still pursue a reinstatement. However, because reinstatement is evaluated by the Board on a case-by-case basis, the details of your case are important. For example, if your license was suspended because of a mistake you made with a patient, the Board will take into consideration any nursing education programs that you took to improve your nursing skills, reducing the likelihood that you would make a similar mistake in the future.
You may also be required to meet with the Board so they can ask questions about the initial case and what you have done since your suspension to ensure that there are no repeat violations.
