    Do you still have to apply through endorsement? With law 475 signed by the governor on the 29th can you just now apply for license directly to the GA BON? Oh also where did you take your CPNE?
    I'm not sure about how 475 affects new grads.....I applied 4/17 before the law was signed into effect. That's a really good question though.

    The e-mail that Excelsior sent out tells us Georgians to continue the process of licensure by endorsement until Georgia establishes a system for the new bill. As long as you enrolled before July 2008 you're good to go without any additional clinical hours.

    Thanks MN was extremely quick I was rather impressed. I'm coming up on a month for GA! My application was reviewed on 5/6 and they notified me I didn't disclose a charge and had to write a letter of explanation ect ect.....It was a freakin bad check charge from back in 2001 that I had forgotten all about:angryfire So I got all of the stuff together and overnighted it to the BON and now I'm back to the waiting game

    Well, good luck. I'm in the process of getting the background check stuff done. I'm hoping to complete this whole process as soon as possible. I'm studying for my NCLEX nightly so I can be ready when I get my ATT. Make sure you post something letting us know when you get it. You're so close!!!

    I graduated May 9th, rec'd my ATT on May 30th and took and passed the NCLEX on June 10th. My employer is just waiting for my license to show on the BON so I can work. Hope this helps
