Can i sue my former school for failing to release my transcript on TIME?

No, you cannot sue your former school. You should have completed your application two weeks ago, and then this wouldn't be an issue. You chose to leave it to the last minute.
Contact the admissions office at the nursing school. Make sure all the rest of your application is complete, and explain the problem about the person on vacation at your old school. If they know ahead of time that you are aware of the deadline and you are doing the best you can, they may grant you an extension on the transcript. (However, they may not. They might just tell you that you shouldn't have waited until the last minute, just as I did.)
If the nursing school won't budge on the deadline, then you need to go back to your first school, in person, with flowers and chocolates (I'm exaggerating), and very very nicely ask if SOMEONE there could please, please PRETTY PLEASE print you a copy of your transcript. I'm sure that there is more than one person in the building who knows how to do it.
Be aware that this response does not create an attorney/client relationship. I live and work in Massachusetts and may or may not know the local laws where you live. I hope people find my responses not only helpful but somewhat entertaining as well. If you rely on this as legal advice, remember the old saying, "You get what you pay for."
