Really I am looking for something that has good growth, I don't hate (highstress+me=bad), and that doesn't consume my every waking hour. A community college to broaden my horizons is starting to sound better and better!
OTOH - there a lot of things that fall under the category of medical field. Some of them don't even involve dealing directly with patients, let alone their bodily fluids. Public health, clinical trials, X-ray/MRI technician, hospital administration. Many of these positions are high-paying and intellectually challenging. They all contribute to patient care. Some people might find that more fulfilling than selling shirts (not that there's anything wrong with selling shirts - I hated working in sales and was really really bad at it.)

Oh - and don't take out student loans!
