About the Georgia License Process

Georgia is part of the Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (eNLC)

The Georgia Board of Nursing licenses registered nurses by examination, endorsement, and reinstatement. The examination is for new graduates who do not yet hold an active license in another state. An endorsement is for candidates who have an active license in another state or jurisdiction. And finally, reinstatement is the licensing option for those who have been previously been licensed as an RN in the state of Georgia.
