I feel you. I am too in the same situation but a little bit worst. I got dismissed in the program due to this ATI. I have one more class to finish before graduating. School policy is: 2 failure is dismissal from the program. the ati was my second, but i did not fail the theory and clinical. I am appealing because i was not given the 3rd chance just like my other 2 classmates. Both of them failed the medical calculations that is given before they progress to the new class. Also, i am appealing to get refund back, because the school did not get accreditation last may but the only told us in october. if the school told us about it in the timely manner, i could have get out of it (2 classes were taken during may, october i have 2 more classes to finish). we were left with no choice and had to stick with it. In my case, it was the bad luck of ati. now, i am in debt, i cannot get my official transcript because i cannot repay (unemployed), and will have to retake the whole thing. So i am deciding to appeal for discrimination and hoping to get money back. btw, i reported this to the nursing board.
