Should I drop the class?

So, I got a job at a top hospital at the beginning of the semester and missed 2 whole first weeks of school. I was able to bounce back in every class except statistics. I have a history of failing math, so I shouldn't be as surprised as I am to have just learned that my grade is a D+ right now. My nursing GPA is 3.6 right now and having a bad grade would obviously bring it down. I was planning on applying for programs this coming Winter, but re-taking stats will push me into the next year (the way I would have to do it).

Should I just withdraw? 

What's more is now school is entirely online due to COVID-19. I don't know if I can use that to my advantage since I have way more time to study and catch up, and tbh online work is easier than in person work. No test anxiety. But I also fear that we'll have far less assignments now due to it. What do you recommend?

Oh, forgot something important.

The professor is going to drop our lowest test grade, but it is currently still part of our grades. So it contributes to my D+. We have two more tests to come and I know that at least one of them will be online. So that kinda changes the game a bit.

I would calculate the grade with 1 dropped test right now. If it is just one test you bombed you may bounce back. If it is a history of iffy test grades you may want to consider dropping. 

This is only my opinion. I would ask your adviser also

Good luck!
