Default Registered nurse required to have ID?

Is a registered nurse required to have ID on her when working so that it can be shown if asked to show that she indeed is a licensed RN?

Did you ever hear of the Eleventh Commandment: "Thou shalt not be stupid."

People who violate that commandment reap consequences ranging from inconvenient to catastrophic.

Here are some consequences for an RN failing to carry her ID:

1 - If the employer requires it, she can lose her job.
2 - If the client requires it, she can lose the client.
3 - If the state requires it, she can lose her license.

Since I can't think of any other reason besides stupidity for not carrying her ID, my conclusion is that, yes, she is "required" by the Eleventh Commandment to carry it.

If she does not have it at the moment, her employer can verify it for you when you all have time.

I assume they are not HIDING that info from you.


Or if you are the nurse at issue, get the info to the requester asap; it is a fair request.
