That is the risk with closely held businesses, your only option is to start a job search immediately.

Sorry that it happened to you.

I start at a group home in its going on my second month and a week ago I asked them for a schedule change due to not having a babysitter. And now my engine went out on my car so I still can't do the shift on the weekend what they hire me for. So can they fire me for this? For needing a schedule change and haven't been on a job 3 months yet?

My manager gave me a letter on the day of me being let go stating that I did not pass probation and I was being let go.
This explains it. You should have had clinical experience but decided to take the exam instead. In hindsite, it might have been better to get the clinical experience first, then the exam.

I would explain this during a future interview, and say you tried your best and you had good intentions by taking the certification exam, but maybe it would have bene wiser to get the experience first.
