Someone will probably post that article about the nurse who's car was bombed. Not sure yet but most likely by a stalker. This is why I hate these websites that give too much info about nurses in their quest to make checking licenses easy for employers. I am not saying that is how this nurse was tracked down but I find it interesting that she was using a post office box for her mail. She was obviously hiding from someone and they found her. If the stalker did not use one of these license web sites in this case it is only a matter of time till one does. Take my case, in Pa they list your post office address but not street address. I live in a small community and if you know my post office you will find me without much difficulty. It can lead to murder.

I hadn'theard about this.
I use a PO Box, mainly because we don't have street addresses here in outer Boonie Land.

Hi oramar. I appreciate your concern. Perhaps all professionals should have their credentials in a database for anyone to view. We know that there are databases out there that provide information on legal actions against physicians and other practitioners. Why not other workers and professionals? Heck, why not get that national id card and code it so that everything about your public and work life is revealed?
You know, they're working on displaying teaching credentials now. That definitely will be a boon to those in the IT software sector. On the surface, it's about security and basic standards. Beneath it all, someone is royally capitalizing on these activities.

I would have no trouble with anyone just posting my name and the fact that my license is active. If they just put my county of residence it would be OK. Counties are very large. But they have my post office and MY BIRTHDATE listed, if I had a stalker(which I don't)it would make things a lot easier for them to find me.
