I'm hoping someone knows the answer to this question. When exactly and how do the schools go about verifying employment? Do they simply call HR or do they actually call your supervisor? At what point do they call--before interview or after interview? I've been told by many, many CRNA's to not let my manager know that I'm applying to CRNA school. So, do the schools really understand if your reference isn't your true supervisor? I know I'm asking weird questions, but this is very important to me especially since I've had to switch jobs. My new job wants a commitment and I'm sure they won't like it if someone calls from the schools that I've applied to.
