I was offered a tentative position in a hospital pending "passing my background check". What does it involve and how long does it take? Would I get a call from them when I passed? I got a call from HR today asking me to confirm whether it's okay to call my previous employer. I gave my consent.
I feel like I'm holding my breath before I can celebrate my new job.
Unquestionably, this could be a nail biting ordeal while you wait. However, one of the issues that we look at during our background checks on a possible hired nurse are, first of all, is your license in good standing, are they any complaints against you, does your information matches somewhat the information that is giving by your previous employer or supervisor, via phone or fax, the years of experience, the length of your last position, your quality of performance, your absentee record, your colleagues relationship, your professionalism, are you a leader? or a follower?(for placement) an overall relationship with your last employer, why did you leave your last employment, and lastly, would they rehired you? Therefore, this could take some time as you can see. Moreover, we are aware that most of us do stretch the truth a little, when it comes to our resume's, therefore, we need to be certain that you will integrate well in our facility. In conclusion, don't sweat the little things; if you have been pretty close to the truth you have no worries... Congratulations are to be in order
P.S. keep us up to date on the outcome.
