Well this situation is quite complicated and I'm hoping to get some advice on it. I recently put in an application to a acute medical facility in my area. I currently work at a nursing home and I've been there for five months. Being that I'm a nursing student it has been my ambition to get into acute care at some point, but I didn't expect to get an opportunity this quickly. Today I had my first interview and everything seemes to have gone well, I was not yet offered the job but they told me when orientation would start and what the base pay was. My issue is that their reference section is quite complicated, and it puts me in a awkward position being that I have not yet been offered the new job. In the reference section they want five references, one having to be my current immediate boss. I need her phone number AND her email. They will email her a survey that she needs to fill out in order for the hiring process to continue.. . . this is somewhat different then my previous experiences have been, where they only needed the number, and could only call regarding when I was employed there and for how long. . . .At this point I would have to approach my boss about a job I haven't even been offered yet in order to get her full reference info, and this will put me in an awkward spot with my current boss. . . what should I do? I really want this new job, it's 1199. . . .
