    I haven't heard this..it seems if you are licensed in one state that would be enough for Ga. I was licensed in another state and had no problem getting an RN license here. Maybe the BON for Ga. can guide you on what requirements are lacking and you can concentrate on just those that are missing. FYI you do not have to be licensed in Ga to work for a federal job in GA.
    www.usajobs.gov is a good place to start. You DO have to have a current license in a US state though.

    I had a few friends that had to work in Tennessee for a while to satisfy the hours they were missing to get a Ga License. One was granted the other was denied
