Class action litigation is a unique area of the law. It allows you to litigate on behalf of a class of similarly situated individuals. While that may be the best approach, you may actually maximize your recovery by bringing an individual lawsuit or suit in joinder against the school.
You should discuss your options with an attorney asap. If you believe you were discriminated against, there are certain prerequisites to filing a lawsuit you'll need to do, and you'll want to get the process in action a.s.a.p., as the law limits the time in which you can file a lawsuit or complaint.

Based on the minimal facts provided, you may have an individual claim for gender-based discrimination. I agree with the first answer that you should promptly consult with a lawyer to determine whether you can pursue such claims and the likelihood of obtaining reinstatement in the nursing program or monetary damages.
However, on can only speculate whether your claim could or should be brought as a class action. To successfully bring a class action lawsuit, the claims must satisfy Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23(a)'s requirements of numerosity, commonality, typicality and adequacy. Additionally, the claims must satisfy one of the Rule 23(b) criteria -- generally that a class action would be a superior method of bringing the claims.
