What to do if I was approved by the state to do my clinicals at my job but they terminated me without warning and are refusing to let me do my clinicals at the facility where I was approved?

My time to do my clinicals is running out. If it expires before I can do them, can I sue for the cost of my classes?

No, you may not sue your employer for the cost of your classes. If you did not have a written employment contract, you were an employee at will; an emplyee at will may be terminated at any time, for any reason, without warning, and the employer is not required to consider the hardship on the employee or reimburse the employee for any costs he or she incurred in expectation of continuing to have the job.
