i dont really see you as being fired, its just a missed opportunity. most people that come into our company are hired as temps and have to serve a 6 month probation period before they learn if they are kept or let go, so they are technically temp employees if they are not kept and full time if they are.
would i put "no" under "have you ever been fired" section?

what exactly happened when they didn't keep you full time? did you they give you a letter that stated you were fired? did they verbally state you were being terminated or fired? this is pretty important (more so to have in writing) in case you have to claim unemployment later.

As a college graduate you should understand the word PROBATION.

I didn't get to be full time because I kept making mistakes. In my profession, normally you would go through 6 months of supervised practice and take the registered exam. In my case, I graduated with a bachelor's and automatically become eligible to take the registered exam without taking supervised practice. Applying for a job in a big hospital gave me a lot of challenges. Although I improved immensely from the beginning, it was not enough to keep my job.

My manager gave me a letter on the day of me being let go stating that I did not pass probation and I was being let go.

You were fired. It is easier to fire someone who is on probation as opposed to someone who is off probation. I would concentrate on finding a place that will let you do your clinical time (if that is possible) because you appear to be in over your head.

It is being fired for being unable to pass your initial employment period, for reasons of performance, work conduct, or no reason at all.

Union contractual protections against firing without due process/cause, AFIAK, do not cover employees during their initial ['probationary'] period.

A year is an awfully long probationary period in a union environment, AFAIK.

Most employers, when asked by a prospective employer for a reference, will only verify salary and dates of employment, and the position held, and perhaps will state whether the person is eligible for rehire. That's it. You could ask the former employer what their answer to that last question would be. If it's yes, you have nothing to worry about.

Depends on the company. Some may give you a week severance if after that period, or let you continue medical insurance.

You were fired.

You did not quit and the employer ended your employment because of poor performance. That is what being fired refers to. Simply because this happened during a probationary period makes no difference.
