I just finished getting my RN License by endorsement in Georgia.
Here's how it went:
I finished NS in Michigan in May 2010 and took my NCLEX, got my MI RN License and moved to GA. When I got here I had to get re-fingerprinted and background checked, I filled out a very detailed application for my GA license and sent it to the BON. Along with my application, I needed to include:official transcripts (unopened), letter of verification from MI BON (unopened), and a passport photo.
I also read on the application that if you have any criminal history including misdemeanors, dismissals, or even just an arrest, you must include all of that court paperwork as well (I'm assuming unopened).
The application took a while for me to complete, but I followed EVERY single step as it was given (like "do not leave any spaces blank"), and my license was issued about 25 days after the GA BON received it. I didn't have to take any tests, but believe me, the application was like writing a novel...jk.
I'm still looking for a job, but that's another topic altogether.
Hope that helps,
