I was wondering what people thought about this (especially those who work in HR or nurse recruitment). When you put down your past work experience, and you know that your NM is no longer in that position or in that hospital, I assume it is still protocol to put that persons name down, right? What if you know who the new NM is, but you did not work under this person? Des this warrant an explanation on your part? Basically, my past is full of this, as I assume many others have experienced this (due to the rapid turnover of middle management). When/if they call for references, are they actually calling the floor, or just HR to verify employment status and eligibility for rehire?
Also, as far as references, is it terrible to not include a more recent employer for this reason (you know they are not there, and don't know where they are, hence no reliable contact info)? By recent, I mean 6 years ago, so not that recent, and I do have other references). Unless any of these people are my friends, I don't feel it's my responsibility to keep track of them, so I'm wondering if potential new hires feel the same way. Agree or disagree?
