  • CNA, phelebotomy. I dont think an accountant takes too long. Try a tech school, I think they're programs are short.

  • Contact your local community college. I would start with Microsoft Office certification classes.

  • CNA's make very little money... in my city they are lucky to make $9.00 an hour. Look into medical billing, medical assisting, dental assisting. They take about 1 year to get a degree. Contact your local community or technical college and they will be able to help you out. Computer classes are a great option too.

  • If you can put up with them for another year then do like I am doing (but I dont live at home with my parents) and go for an LPN. Their pay can pay the bills and also even though it isnt a very high degree, you are still a nurse and after you graduate you can work for a while as an LPN until you get your own place and settle down and after a while you can go back and get your RN license, RN isn't but 2 years. Good luck!

  • Maybe you don't have to get a degree. I have 2 degrees and no job. I recommend looking into trade school.

  • if u like the medical field, how about MRI/CT. 2 years and starting salary is around $28/hr. if you find a job in a hospital even more.
