It really depends on what your passion is. The careers you have chosen vary greatly pertaining to schooling and income. What are you going to medical school for? I imagine to be a doctor? In a lot of ways the careers you have listed correlate with each other, because they are all nursing in some way or another. I am a CNA and did that in 6 weeks, it cost me $ 1000.00 and the state board test in AZ cost me $ 85.00. I needed my CNA certification in order to to apply to LPN school (that is a requirement at the school I am applied for). I am attending LPN school in the Fall. The path I have chosen works like this: I recieved my CNA to go to LPN school, after my LPN is done in 12 months I go to my community college and am automatically in “block c” of the associates program for my RN. After that I will be transferring to ASU and most likely sitting on a wait list. After completing my BSN and/or masters my final step for my career is applying to be a CRNA (I have to have acute care for 2 yrs just to apply).
