I hv called the GABON to ask what I will need to submit but I was only directed to go to the GA website which is actually not helping me.

Rememeber that incomplete applications will result in processing delays. Additionally, please note that if you have graduated from nursing school within four years of the date of application you will not be required to meet the practice requirement described on the application.

I have a couple questions about RN licensure by endorsement, too. I currently live and am licensed in VA and have applied for a job as a new grad nurse at a hospital in GA. The hospital indicated I need to have a GA license before they'll make me an offer.
I found the link (thanks) for the application to get my license endorsed into GA. But the instructions indicate I also need fingerprints and a background check by a company that runs the GAPS system. I'm not clear how I can do that, living outside the state at the moment. Would I have to fly/drive to somewhere in GA to go to a GAPS site for this stuff?
I'm not sure I want to go to that effort and cost when I don't even have a job offer yet in GA.
