Testimonial from CRT RPN – Javaria Hashmi

I started off working with THP through the NGG program and I am happy to say that I now work at Credit Valley Hospital in a full-time position with CRT! Throughout a 3 month period I learned a great deal, including the newly implemented Epic system. The program granted me the time to put my learnings into practice and I had the support and guidance of my team and mentor. I felt comfortable through the whole process as my mentor, my clinical educators and coordinators were in in constant communication, always checking in and tailoring my learning needs. I was never rushed into taking a full patient workload or for handling more than I could take. As a new grad and this being my first ever job, I was able to master my critical skills, guiding me into an independent practice.

With the NGG program and my amazing team at THP, I was able to successfully transition into my full-time role, feeling prepared to start practicing on my own!
