I am a BScN student from Ontario. I failed my med/surg clinical last summer [ :'( ] and I am about to repeat it next month. Failing the clinical is already lousy enough, however I dread the idea of being asked to present my transcript to prospective employers when I seek my first nursing job.
For any of us here who have gone through New Grad Initiatives (or similar programs) or have successfully applied for a first nursing job, were you asked to present a transcript? Is registration with one's regulatory body enough?
Thanks so much.
I'm a recent grad and I was never asked to present a transcript. For the NGGI, if you are a successful candidate they do ask for a copy of your degree, I believe for funding purposes. Also in an interview I was asked which year I started my program and which year I completed it. The interviewer was definitely checking to ensure I did it within the 4 years. However, I don't think you have much to worry about. The primary concern is that you are registered and are in good standing.
