The new hospital AA offered me a job and doing a background check. But during the time of interview at AA I only had 4 weeks of working at BB Hospital and I did not put BB Hospital on my RESUME. I was currently taking all classes for BB's orientation because I just started. So I didn't feel the need to update my resume for the Nurse recruiter at AA because I had not had any clinical experience yet at BB. So I disclosed this and when they asked me if I had any experience I said no...
Now, I have a background check at AA with HR. Will they find out that I am currently working at BB? It's only been two months with BB... I was going to tell HR at AA but they want to call my current employer, etc... so I feel like I should just leave this off... because if they call my current employer they might not like the fact that they are orienting me and I am moving to a new hospital? So they could fire me right? Becuase although AA offered me a job it is not 100% yet.
I don't have any criminal record or anything and my current work place is good but I feel that I want to retire at the hospital I recieved my new offer at because I am a new grad.
If you received a paycheck from the hospital where you are currently on orientation there is a chance it will show up on your credit report or background check. I think this is poor career planning though unless there is some blatant reason you need to leave on orientation. I agree that you should stay on at the first employer, They have already invested the time and money on orientation and took a chance on you in this market. It goes both ways....we want empolyers to treat us well...we need to treat them well too and honor our obligations.

It you bought any items/opened up any credit cards using B facility as employer will show up on credit check.
By not disclosing current position, you are opening yourself up to "falsification of resume" charge which is grounds for immediate termination in many facilities for failure to disclose current position. I lost 2 potential employees over such an issue.
