I had a (much, much smaller) issue on my final teaching prac and I was convinced that I was going to be failed by my supervising teacher. I went to the uni and had a meeting there and then they sent out a rep to come and visit my school and discuss with me and my supervisor. I highly recommend t you get onto the coordinator of pracs at your uni asap

Gosh, how awful for you be treated that way. Given the latest update, if I was in your shoes I would be emailing the HR (or similar) department of the hospital and inform them of the way you were treated. Why the uni would even want to send students there for placement when they get treated like you have is beyond me. But I definitely think you need to inform someone higher up at the hospital.

Why were they going to put you on a contract? Keep anything they have given you in writing/email about this. If there are legitimate serious performance concerns that can be substantiated then you have less of a case but if it is a grudge based only on perceived racial background then they are in the wrong and are obligated to help you not essentially kick you out and say too hard.
I work in a university (not in nursing but in health and we have placements) and I am sure this would never happen at my uni. If it did and I found out about it I would be like a dog with a bone on this and would take it all the way as it is simply unacceptable. There will be someone at your uni who can advocate for you.
You need to take this further. If you would like advice as to how to do this feel free to PM me.

Not acceptable from the hospital or Uni. Go and see student services about this. Tell your co-ordinator that this response is unsatisfactory and you will be seeking further advice. I've worked at a Uni and placed students (teaching) and if any students complained about this kind of treatment and were told what you were told there would be huge dramas. The role of the Uni is to be your advocate at best and mediator at worst - this is just them washing their hands and saying too hard. Don't settle for this discrimination OP!

I absolutely agree with all that's been said. You definitely shouldn't be penalised for this, and withdrawing you from the unit and not addressing the issues is absolutely not ok.
I had to be withdrawn from a placement in another field (mental health issues), and I was told I would be failed. My unit coordinator and course coordinator were the same person, so I went over them to the school's Dean - failing me for illness was completely unfair. You could also address it through the complaints process of the uni. Student services could assist if you can't find anyone else who will help.
Failing assistance from the uni, I would lodge a complaint with the hospital itself - or maybe do it also.
Gather your documentation. Try and get some statements from the other students or witnesses to the events as well. Take a support person to each meeting as a witness to what is discussed.
I am horrified that this is how you were treated, and angry on your behalf.

Yeah that's rubbish. Essentially them not wanting to go to the hassle of following this up correctly will cost you. It will cost you time, lost earnings and course fees. That is totally unacceptable and I'd be taking this further until you came to a resolution which didn't disadvantage you in such a dramatic way because of someone else's judgemental bullshiz

Completely unsatisfactory response from the uni, why would they want their students going there anyway if they're going to be mistreated. Did they propose you do placement at the same or different institution next year?
Agree with others go over their head, this is discrimination and I'm sorry you're subjected to it in this day and age.

I'd be making an appointment with someone higher up at your uni. like the vice chancellor or something.
that's disgusting that she's going to condone discrimination to ensure future students from your uni are accepted for placements at this hospital!!
keep pushing the uni to advocate on your behalf. take it as high up as you need to. I'd start with the head of school then if they're useless, talk to someone higher up.
don't let this slide!
