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.
