This is a great route to go IF you like helping people. If not then stay away from the profession. There are enough people doing it for the pay and it shows.Find a small college in a small town, get a degree in nursing
The G.I. Bill paid for my R.N. degree, and I could not have chosen a better career path.
Other areas that pay well in the medical field and are relatively quick programs are radiology (X-Ray, Cat Scan ((CT)), MRI) tech, respiratory therapist (RT), or medical equipment repair, etc...
Thanks for your service.
