Look, you've invested a lot of time, heart and money into getting this far. As someone else posted, my advise is to "roll with this". Meet the instructor as planned, be attentive to the rationale behind the CIP and make a plan to salvage this term.
Don't be defensive, open your ears and close your mouth while your instructor is talking to you. Don't demand to know what was said, don't speak to anyone else about this as that will only come off as not getting the lesson inherent in a CIP. Even if you feel this is unjust or she has made up her mind without hearing your side of it you really don't have a leg to stand on. Do whatever it takes to pass and leave the instructor behind in a cloud of dust.
When it can affect her ability to finish school, she does. If she's in trouble for being unsafe, she has a right to know exactly what she did that was unsafe.
Think of it like if you were at work, and your boss gave you a writeup for being unsafe, wouldn't you expect your boss to be able to tell you exactly what happened to warrant that writeup? So why should it be any different in school? If her instructor can't tell her exactly what warranted her CIP, her instructor should not be giving it.
Don't forget, you're paying to go to school. It's costing you thousands of dollars. Don't let teachers do things like this.
I wouldn't do anything until after meeting next week, but unless there is something concrete, an exact situation, in detail, of why she deserves it, she can and should fight it. Not just for her, but for every student after her that this is going to happen to. You don't owe instructors a single thing. They owe YOU. YOU are the customer. You're paying to be taught.
If you're not willing to stand up for yourself, are you really going to be able to stand up for your patients?
