I can't find my answer on allnurses.com so I am directly asking the question. 

What happens if a person withdraws between class. what I mean by this is we are taking fundamentals now and in March, we are starting med Surg. After finals in fundamentals, I may withdraw from all classes instead of returning to nursing. Does it matter if I am passing or failing since I withdraw before March 24 which is their last day to withdraw with a W. What do you think of Medical Assisting Associate of Applied Science Degree?

one last thing, Does it mean I flunked out of nursing school even if I am passing before I drop? I'm stressed out as you can tell.

You need to have a discussion with your academic advisor to adequately answer this question in relation to your school's policies.

I don't know if "technically" it means you flunked out of nursing school if you're not getting D and F's.  Chances are when and if you decide to apply to another nursing or allied health-type of school (medical assisting included), they might ask if you have ever attended any type of nursing school or medical-related program.  You'll need to answer "yes."  After this, they'll ask you for transcripts or some type of letter from your previous school and an explanation why you left.   Of course, this doesn't happen in every school, but in some.

This is the problem with dropping out of a program like this and deciding later on to either reapply or go another route.  Many programs may think, "do we take a chance on somebody that already had a chance and decided to just leave?"  Programs have more than enough people applying who want their first chance.  Sure there are various scenarios where one may not be judged too harshly, for example:  death of immediate family member, personal illness, etc..

As Rose_Queen mentioned, talk to the advisor and ask them what will be noted on your record/transcript or what they would say if contacted in the future when you apply to other programs regarding dropping out of this program.
