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.

- Mar 7 by serenitylove14Most places either want a copy of your transcript or a copy of your degree. I repeated a class as well and I have had many offers and interviews even with that on my record.

- Mar 7 by Fiona59Nobody I know has ever been asked for a transcript or their diploma.
The closest questions I've had were: where did you go to school? and did you pass the registration exam first try?
- Mar 7 by loriangel14Employers will not ask for a transcript.All they care about is whether you have your license. They don't even care where you went to school or what my grades were.
- Mar 7 by dishesAgree with Fiona, I haven't heard of employers asking for transcripts or diplomas. However, if an employer notices on your resume, that your education took longer than norm, they might ask you to explain it.
- Mar 7 by loriangel14You can just put your graduating year on your resume.You don't need to put the year you started.
- Mar 8 by RiRi03I'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.Last edit by RiRi03 on Mar 8 : Reason: grammar
- Mar 8 by dishesTo be honest I would rather work with a new grad who repeated and learned the clinical skills they need to be safe, then one who scraped by and barely understands safe clinical practice.
- Mar 11 by edimoI work in ontario and my employer never asked to see my transcript. All they required was my CNO registration # and HR asked for a copy of my degree so they could apply an education premium.
