I always turn off my camera before I take the battery out. But my dad took out the battery without turning it off? It may have went into sleep mode/stand-by mode and the camera wasn't doing anything. But either way could this have done anything wrong to my camera that I should be worried about? I over worry about my camera haha but I was wondering. Thanks.

Stop worrying. It wouldn't damage anything anyway, but if the camera is still working there is obviously no damage done. You're not supposed to change cards or lenses with the camera on either, but people do it all of the time with no adverse consequences.
Welcome to Nikonians! As JP wrote above, if your camera is working correctly All is well so don't worry about it. That said, turning the camera off before removing the battery or memory card for that matter is best practice. Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!
There is a difference between losing power because the battery because you run out of juice, and and removing a Battery while power is on (Especially, if the battery is at full power). When Battery is at low power you get a warning that there is not enough power. (At least on my 3000 it does).
It's possible that it did no damage. But, then again it could. Its possible that it did affect something in a minor way or will eventually.
I worked in Electronics for years and know the affects of voltage surges.
If it hasn't affected the camera, than that is great, Don't do it again.
