The Florida Department Of Health Helps Veterans

The U.S Army

The Florida Department of Health is recruiting veterans in Florida. VALOR, the Veterans Application for Licensure Online Response system, helps veterans find employment in health care.

Anthony Spivey is a veteran who works in the health field. He says the program eases the process for veterans.

“That process allows the individuals to not have to pay the license fees or applications fees to help them get in to the process of working in the health field,” Spivey says.  

More than 900 veterans and 200 military spouses receive licenses from VALOR’s fee waivers.
