Imagine you were offered your dream career opportunity for a nursing position that you worked very hard on for a long time. This opportunity is offered to you by a facility that you were "let go" from years before you were a nurse. The manager offering you the position wants you to start in two weeks. You have to give notice to your current employer. You have given a thorough and truthful explanation to the hiring manager about the incident on your application, but it has never been brought up otherwise.

Please tell me what you think. Would you or would you not mention the previous termination to this new manager before you put in your two weeks notice at your current place of employment?

Thanks!

You've already done your part.

I've always lived by this when it comes to situations like this one... "Never say in seven words what you can say in two."

I say no too but do you have a written job offer / acceptance letter? That would make me feel better when giving my notice.

No, I will not get one before I put in my two weeks. That was my thought too...

I haven't heard this before but I love it!

OP, no way would I give notice without a letter of intent. They know you are employed now and are pushing you to start quickly so I'd need someting in writing. Good luck and congrats on getting your dream job.

So you guys think a nurse manager would already know when they made the decision? So if it came up again it wouldn't hurt anything right?
