So I have been working at a hospital since January and I have hated it. I was a nursing student but this job made me realize I did not want to go into the medical field so I changed my major to education. I am perdiem at this job and I want to quit. I haven’t picked up any shifts in a couple weeks and I already got a new job. How should I quit this job? I really do not want to give a notice and I feel as though I don’t have to because I will never be working in healthcare again. Any advice ?

Since you are per diem and already haven't picked up shifts for a couple of weeks a formal written notice might not be necessary but it would still be the best way to handle quitting a job. Not sure why you are against giving a notice but at least giving the scheduler a call to let them know you are no longer available to pick up shifts is the minimum you should do. Ghosting an employer is not a good thing to do no matter what profession you are in.

^^^^^^This!

It's NEVER a good thing to stick it to any employer. As they say 'what goes around, comes around'. Close out your personnel file in an adult professional manner. Just KISS it. That is Keep It Short & Simple.

No explanations needed. Just end with a 'thank you'.

I definitely want to let them know I am quitting, I would never just ghost the employer. I just don’t want to give a two weeks notice is what I meant. I do not want to go back to that place and I am just not sure if I have to give a 2 weeks notice or not

Date

Dear Employer,

This notice serves as my intent to resign from my position. My last date of availability for shifts will be xx/xx/2020.

Thank you for the opportunities afforded to me during my time at General Hospital on your unit.

Sincerely, Sloaneee

Don't make this harder than it has to be. If you want to burn the bridge, make the resignation effective immediately instead of two weeks from the date of your letter.
