Hello, I have a question regarding applying for RN licensing by endorsement in Georgia. I now have an active license in Minnesota and planning to transfer my license to Georgia but since I had my license in Minnesota I haven't work there yet. I have been working in Canada as a registered nurse for about 6 months. Will i be eligible for the 500 hours of work experience required to have your license transferred even though I haven't been working in the United States.

PS: I have graduated from nursing school more than 4 years

Thank you!

You'll have to ask the board if they will recognize your hours from Canada. They have a specific form that your employer will have to complete, if they do accept those hours. Good luck!

Thanks a lot for replying, I called the board but they could not tell me wether or not they accept the hours from canada, so now I guess I just have to send them my application and hope for the best. I was wondering if someone went through the same situation as me and was hoping that I could get an answer before submitting my application. Thanks again

At least it wasn't an outright "no" answer! Did you work in an acute care setting?

That is exactly what I was telling myself, so i think there is hope. I've been a registered nurse for about 6 years now, I had to take a year off last year for mat leave but now i'm back practicing. And yes I've worked in an acute medical unit, I've also worked in a general surgery unit and now I'm doing Home care. If you don't mind me asking how's the job opportunities for RNs in Georgia now, is it easier to find jobs or harder. Thank you

I am in Augusta, there are lots of jobs (with sign-on bonuses) at the hospitals here, especially for an experienced nurse.
