  1. I am currently applying to new nursing jobs at different hospitals at this time. I like my current position in the hospital I am in right now, the people I work with, it's benefits etc. and I've been with this hospital for a little over 2 years. With this in mind however, I have also been wanting to move to a new state to be closer to family and am in general looking for a lifestyle change. Basically, I am seeking work in other hospitals because of personal reasons, not because I dislike my current job. During my search, I found one hospital system that has gotten good reviews on this website, other websites, and people speak well of it. I went to apply for a position within this hospital, and once I opened the job application on it's website, it now requires me to list my current supervisor, my supervisors contact information and gives me a yes/no option if they can contact my supervisor in order to submit this job application. A possible scenario: they contact my supervisor, my supervisor finds out I am seeking work elsewhere and they do not provide me with a job offer. My fear: Boss now will not look favorably upon me and anytime a situation occurs in which there is conflict, negotiation etc: "JJKTY is trying to leave us anyway, why should we invest time for JJKTY or look out for a nurse who is not going to stay?" I have filled out numerous job applications in the past, this is the first that I've stumbled upon which requires this information. I know it's not wise to let others know within a company you're working for you are seeking work elsewhere. Is this info they are requesting a strange practice? Should I provide them with this contact information? Would it be a red flag for them if I told them not to contact my current supervisor that I am seeking a job within their hospital? Do I put my current job at risk if I give them this information?
