Do we put our LPN License # on a resume or not?? Never had one before so this is new to me.

Isn't a nursing license number public information anyway?
If it's available on a website that the public has access too, I would probably go ahead and put it on there, and HR or the Nurse Recruiter would probably appreciate that. They have no reason to get a Social Security Number until they hire you.
I don't think it's an identity theft issue anymore than a listed phone number in the phone book is.
I have two professional licenses, and one of them is with the North Carolina Commissioner of Banks...and all you have to do is pop my name in there, and it will not only give you my license number, but where I work and the address.
I can't imagine the BON being any different as much as they encourage the public to check those things out.
Side Note: I just went on the NC BON, and yup, you can pop anyone's name in, you don't even need the city, and it comes right up.
