The Georgia State Board of Nursing licenses registered nurses and practical nurses. Georgia is a Nurse Licensure Compact (Compact) state, meaning that nurses licensed by another Compact state do not need to apply for licensure unless they plan to make Georgia their primary state of residency. All applicants who have worked less than 500 hours are required to submit a CES. All applicants seeking a multi-state license are required to complete a CES or if completed in another state, request a CES re-evaluation.
Select license type you’re applying for:
Licensed Practical Nurse - Initial Licensure
English Language Proficiency Exam Results
Exam scores are not required to be submitted to CGFNS for CES
*Applicants MUST have ONE active foreign license at the time the CES Report is issued
