Can I take Florinef (fludrocortisone) during a 24 hour urine sodium collection or do I need to stop it during that time?

In brief: Depends.

it WILL affect the amount of sodium excreted.
Most often urinary creatinine and/or protein is being examined and NOT the sodium content, in which case it wouldnt probably matter. You should probably find out before messing up the test.
