You went to exactly the right place in the APA manual. Unfortunately, GA is one of a number of states that uses an irregular citation format, so the example doesn't apply.
In the references, the correct format for citing the entire act is:
Georgia Registered Professional Nurse Practice Act, O.C.G.A. § 26-1-13 (2012).
When citing multiple sections but not the whole act, use two sections symbols and give inclusive numbers -- Georgia Registered Professional Nurse Practice Act, O.C.G.A. §§ 26-5-10 (2012).
Glad to be of help!
