Prior to online nursing license verification, I did list my license # in resume header.
Today, I list info as separate section:
License and Certifications:
PA license issued: 7/22/1982 Active
NJ license issued:12/28/1992 Active
BLS for Healthcare Providers issued: 2/4/2012
For experienced nurses concerned about age discrimination, I would list just state and active.
I no longer list Medical/Surgical, RN,BC credential as let is lapse upon assuming management position.
The first thing I check on receiving RN application is license status- saves my time interviewing those with practice stipulations as employer does not permit hiring. Indicate if your license name differs from current name used saves my time too.
