I've always listed my license number(s) on my CV. They're public record anyway -- why not??
For the OP, I list them by the original date issued ("1984 - current," on the left margin, same format as I use to list everything else on my CV) and "License to practice as Registered Nurse in the state of (Ohio, Connecticut, whatever), #123456"
I have been told that putting the license # on your resume gives someone the opportunity to use it. Identity theft.
Thank you klone.
Nursing license numbers are public knowledge. Anyone can look them on the State BON's website or on Nursys for states that participate (which is most of them). Plus, how would your nursing license number allow someone to steal your identity? It's not like it's linked with your credit card number or drivers license. Plus who's going to see your license number and steal your identity? A hiring manager? HR? That's nonsense.
I list mine as "Registered Nurse in MA, license number"
