Resume question-rn license?
- 0Aug 13, '12 by oztizz184how would you write your RN license info on the resume?
Registered Nurse, state, license number, expiration date?
or which info to not include
- 0Aug 19, '12 by NRSKarenRN AdminPrior 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.

How can I get that I am currently licensed in 3 states on my resume while it taking up the least amount of space? Up until today, all I had was the NY license & number on it, which was listed under my BSN education experience. I want to add NJ and FL and keep it on one resume for ease of use. How about writing "Licensed in NY, NJ & FL" under my education experience? By writing that, should I not be concerned about the absence of the actual license numbers? I saw your post above and I value your opinion.
This is how it looks now:
University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey, Newark, NJ 2013
BS in Nursing, Graduated cum laude
Licensed in NY, NJ & FL
Touro College, Brooklyn, NY ……….
Thanks!Last edit by holinurse on Mar 25 : Reason: trying to accurately show the resume layout
- 1Mar 25 by NRSKarenRN AdminI'm now seeing resumes with license listed under Name Header
1234 Candy Lane
North Pole, PA 19111
Licensed: PA, NJ, DE
That way frees up space and makes it easy to use online verification. Please make sure the name you list is actual license name too.
