The ambiguity in my phrasing of the title was intentional. I was dismissed from my BSN program halfway through the last semester of the program. I strongly believe that this was due in large part to numerous monumental failures on the part of my now-former program. I was an average nursing student at a very well regarded nursing school
. Before nursing school, I was a straight A student who was always on top of everything, was eager to learn, and always went the extra mile. My nursing school had some terrible instructors and ask some otherwise great instructors to teach subjects that were far outside of their areas of expertise. So, halfway through the last semester of the program I was in my med-surg preceptorship with a psych nurse with zero med-surg experience (since her undergrad) as my instructor. All of my preceptor evaluations were excellent. One day, my instructor comes to the floor and asks for a report on my patients. After I spout of my organized, thorough, and admittedly somewhat jargon filled report, my instructor tells me that I seem nervous and disorganized and she sends me to remediation with the only other instructor in the program with whom I have ever had an issue. This instructor drags me across the coals, calls me on the tiniest literally insignificant things, and ultimately tells me that I failed remediation. With that, I'm out of the nursing program a mere 8 weeks before I would have (should have?) graduated. I'm now in the process of appeal my grade. My issue now is that I had to drag a lot of people throw the mud (including the chair of the program for somehow allowing someone so unqualified to be the instructor for the class) and in the process appear to have made a lot of enemies within the program's faculty. If I'm successful, I'm worried that these two instructors along with the chair of the program will look for any possible reason to fail me again. If I am unsuccessful, I'm still screwed with 95% of a BSN.
How to I go to another school after being dismissed/sue my former school/otherwise salvage this situation?
Thanks in advance!!!
