Holding ATT for not attending ATI review

My instructor is saying that the school will not send my paperwork in order to test if I don't attend a 3 day ATI review that is scheduled for after graduation. I already have a job to do paperwork for and various other "real life" things that I have been putting off the past year, and most important things are scheduled during those three days. If I pass, can they legally refuse to send in my paperwork?

Is the ATI course required by your school of nursing handbook or a course syllabus as a requirement of program completion? If so, I'd say they can reasonably require it before releasing your ATT. Walking across the stage doesn't always guarantee total freedom.  My guess is that this requirement is included in some official document you've had access too for a while, even if you weren't aware. Many schools require NCLEX prep because it helps their pass rates.

If not, I don't see how they could reasonably withhold it... but I'd trust them that they will and would find a way to attend.  

Would they allow you to register for another review course instead?

Like the previous poster, I would look to work out a compromise if I were you -- maybe another review course that would fit your needs better.   But if they list the course as a requirement anywhere, they can enforce that requirement.

Yes, they can.  My school required it.  We all have life things to do.  But if you want to be a nurse, I would do it.

My ATI review was pointless and everyone was just on Netflix or on their phones. Not to mention it was 8 hours for 3 whole days.....felt like wasted time. But knowing how anal nursing professors are, I would just find a way to go or just ask if you can complete a module in replacement of your attendance.

My school also made us go to the review session as a requirement.

I know someone who did not get their paperwork submitted for precisely this reason.  They did not attend the required review, and their school withheld the paperwork submission to the Board.  Best to comply if you want that release.  It is my understanding from reading many threads on this site that it is quite common practice for schools to have requirements at the end of the program that will keep someone from their ultimate goal if they choose to buck the system.  This is not the hill you want to die on.  Find a way to attend the review, no matter how useless you think it will be.

It was also required at my school to attend an ATI review. There were people who could not attend the reviews, they talked to the person in charge of it and instead of attending the review at school, they just had to attend another review somewhere else. However, they had to provide proof of it.

This exactly. You've come this far, why let 24 hours get in your way?
