The state of Georgia requires aspiring nursing aides to enroll in a NATP that is approved by the Georgia Medical Care Foundation or the GMCF. The GMCF oversees all training programs in the state and as well as the Nurse Aide Registry. This private contractor was given authority by the Department of Community Health. The NATPs in this state are offered by different foundations like technical colleges, community training centers, and government approved nursing homes. It takes about 2-6 weeks to finish a program.
Once you complete your training, you can then apply for the license exams. You will need to provide a copy of your high school diploma, two passport size pictures, fingerprint cards, and the payment for the exam fees. You will also be required to undergo physical exams to determine that you are physically capable of taking care of patients. If you have any disabilities, you will need to be subjected to special conditions, for more information, you can call (678)527-3010.
If you are a CNA license holder, you can work in this state by applying for reciprocity. The state will not extend reciprocity if the person was not able to take and pass his/her state’s license exams within one year from the completion of their training program.
