I recently started apply for jobs in another state I am trying to move back home closer to family. Interviews went great and the job that I really really really want called me back wanting to do a background check and reference check. They asked for my manager and supervisors contact info because they wanted the references to be someone that I report directly to. So, they email me stating that my nurse manager said that it is against company poicy for her to provide a professional reference!!!! I don't buy this???? is that even possible???? Any thoughts on this or how I should handle it???
PS. - I already provided them with contact info for a nurse that I work with that acts as a resource nurse for new hires and she was mine when I started a few years ago. They also are contacting my supervisor but I am just so upset and embarassed because of my manager.
