Serving The Healthcare Community of Florida

PRN is one of the two programs designated as the State of Florida's Impaired Practitioners Programs (the other being the Intervention Project for Nurses). As such, PRN and its Medical Director serve as the Consultant to the Department of Health (DOH) and the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) on matters relating to practitioner impairment. While working with these agencies, PRN also works closely with the DOH / DBPR Legal Departments in regard to impairment related mitigation factors during disciplinary proceedings.

PRN Mission Statement

The Professional Resource Network has the ongoing mission to protect the health, safety and welfare of the public, while at the same time to support the integrity of the healthcare team and other professionals. Through a complex and comprehensive state wide system, the Professionals Resource Network has the ability for early identification, intervention and appropriate referral of all licensed healthcare professionals and other professionals

(nurses have their own program) who are affected with all impairment types, inclusive of those arising from physical conditions, mental/emotional problems, and chemical dependency/abuse. When indicated, post evaluation/treatment and monitoring afford healthcare practitioners and other professionals the earliest and safest opportunity to reintegrate with the healthcare team while protecting both the confidentiality of the participant and the safety of the public.
