Classes started Jan 8 and I hope I get most of the money back. I need to return it to my family member who helped me pay for this semester. Pretty sure the returned check payment will around 350.00 and I paid 1,800. I really wanted to be a nurse for a long time. I decided after failing a test today, It's not for me anymore. It's too much stress and feels more like an elimination game than teaching people how to be nurses. We already teach ourselves anything so what do they do?  I'd love to have their jobs and pay for what they do. The answers in the book are wrong and she doesn't have the answers to the worksheet we can print out the practice.  These teachers couldn't demonstrate a head to toe assessment for the class without looking silly.  Anyways, I am done thinking about this stuff.  I want nothing else to do with the health field. Good luck to all the nursing students. Hope your program is better.

How much you get back will depend on your school. They all have different policies. There should be a calendar with add/drop dates and refunds on your schools website.

Was this a community college, state, or private school?  What you will get back will depend on their policy.  There are some schools who will not return any money once you set foot on the first day of class.  Nursing school is a different type of animal compared to other degrees or courses of study.  For sure, deposits are non-refundable, but I hope you're right and you do get something back.

Also, are you sure you just want to up and quit after 1 test?  I took a class once where I ended dropping it, but realistically I know it was my fault because I was not spending the sufficient time I needed to and my head was elsewhere.   I ended up retaking it, focusing, and passed with a solid "A."

I recall you have posted a few times within the past month or so and have been frustrated.  Have you taken the advice others have given you and gone to office hours or ask fellow students for help?  I know on some of your posts a lot of people from here on the website have been very nice to guide you through solving calculations and offering advice.  Maybe take a step back and reassess?   Obviously only you can decide if the nursing path is right for you.  

Good luck in whatever happens and take some time to think about it.  You may want to even look through this site and see how many people in your shoes have quit nursing programs only to later post a topic as to how they can get back into a new program after they left a nursing program.
