New CE Tracking System 

The Georgia Board of Nursing began using CE Broker to track & verify your compliance on August 3, 2015.  As a nurse in Georgia, you will want to create an account in CE Broker, download the iPhone or Android app, and learn how to report completion of one of the required continuing competency options.  

Remember, do not forward your CE documentation to the Board.  All documentation should be sent to CE Broker.  The Board will now review your records in CE Broker electronically when conducting renewal audits. 

With CE Broker it's easy to report completion of one of the continuing competency options yourself, plus many educational providers will actually reports hours for you as you complete CE.

Information Regarding Recent Rule Updates

The Georgia Board of Nursing recently adopted changes to numerous rules in Chapter 410.  Additionally, the Board voted to repeal all rules in Chapter 400.  Notices were sent by email to individuals on the interested parties list and we have received numerous inquiries regarding the repeal of the rules in Chapter 400.  For clarification, the rules regulating licensed practical nurses have been moved from Chapter 400 to Chapter 410.  This was an administrative change included in the combination of the Georgia Board of Nursing and the Georgia Board of Examiners of Licensed Practical Nurses.  The links on the Board's website will be updated soon.  We sincerely apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
