Clinical laboratory professionals are an important part of overall patient care. For this reason, the Florida Board of Clinical Laboratory Personnel oversees all laboratory personnel employed in Florida. All clinical laboratory personnel who work in the state are obligated to observe a set of laws put forth by the Florida Board of Clinical Laboratory Personnel. The laws are in place to provide protection to patients as well as to employees and employers in the facility housing the clinical laboratory. There is legislation that particularly applies to personnel working in Florida clinical labs. This continuing education program will discuss how the laws help employees to perform their duties in the lab.


The goal of this laws and rules of the Florida Board of Clinical Laboratory Personnel continuing education program is to inform laboratory professionals about the laws governing their work in the state of Florida. After studying the material presented here, you will be able to:
  • Contrast the types of clinical laboratory licenses, and the scope of practice and qualifications for each
  • Review the process for application and renewal of licenses
  • Identify the different types of rules and violations and the resulting penalties
