I'm scared that I might not graduate from my program

Posted

I'm in my last semester of a BSN program and I would like to complete the program in December 11th. I might not make it. 3 out of my 4 classes this semester are over. Now I have a capstone course for November and early December, but the clinical portion may prove to be problematic. I was doing clinical rotations at a psych hospital this semester and planned to go to the same hospital for capstone, but it just closed to students. I was moved to another hospital with an instructor who failed me in my first semester. I don't want to go into the details of what happened. I emailed the associate director of my program and asked her to move me somewhere else and she said that there is no where else for students at this time. She said she does not know when or where I can begin clinical and we will have to "wait and see". She also said that they don't expect students to fail or not graduate because there is no preceptor available. I was confused by that statement because I thought we need a preceptor for our capstone. However, I've heard of students who completed their capstone online last semester due to the pandemic. I really want to do everything I can to complete the program after making it the end and I'm afraid I've ruined my chances. The director already gave up my spot to another student after I told her I wanted to go somewhere else and I can't do that rotation now even if I wanted to. I don't know if I will do an online clinical for capstone or what alternative there could be if she can't find somewhere to put me. I don't know if I'm the only student in the program who has no where to go yet. I have a friend who is planning to pick me up the day I finish classes and drive me to his apartment 1500 miles away from where I am now. I want to leave here as soon as possible so I feel a lot of pressure to graduate. I don't know how to explain myself beyond that. I feel like I am needing something to reassure me that I will graduate this semester.
