I have been travel nursing for the past year. I was on assignment in Knoxville when it got cancelled due to local hires and such. Anyway to make a long story short, my husband and I are now in Georgia staying with family. I am working on everything I need for my Georgia lic however, my past employer is really dragging their feet on filling out the verification of hours form. Are there any jobs that I can do with my ADN but no licensure in GA? How long does it normally take to receive GA lic after submission?

You'd need to contact the BON for all the info. on how long it takes, etc. Am not sure why you need verification of hours worked to get your license - I didn't but that was in 2006 when I relocated.
As far as working as an nurse - in any capacity - without a GA license..there is no place I know of that will - if the BON will give you a temp. license some places may hire you..the only other option is the VA - as long as you have an active license somewhere they can hire - www.usajobs.gov

Georgia does require proof of hours for some endorsements.
