Graduating in May as an RN in NY...moving to GA in August

  1. 0 I tried looking for an answer to this, but haven't found one on here. If I did miss it, I apologize in advance...

    Here's my question:
    I am graduating from a SUNY school in NY with my RN in May. I am applying for NY licensure and to also take the NCLEX.
    After doing all this, my husband accepted a job in Atlanta that requires us to move there in August. I'm hoping my day to take the NCLEX is before then!
    What do I do as far as licensure? Should I apply NOW for a GA license? Do I need to have a current GA address? I will be calling the GA board of nursing on Monday. But wanted to see if anyone had any help/advice!

    Get your license in NY them immediately apply to GA and put "new grad" on the GA application. I know someone who did this exact thing a few months ago and her GA license came within a week. She only had to go to the police station in NY and be fingerprinted for a background check....said it was easy!

    You don't have to have a GA address.

    I would still check with the GA BON just in case things have changed though.

    Good Luck!!
