- Aug 13, '12 by Ashley, PICU RNI don't list the license number or the expiration date. There's no need. If the company wants to know my license number then they can look online.
Registered Professional Nurse (active), state, and the date I was first licensed.

- Aug 19, '12 by NRSKarenRNPrior 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.
