What ever you decide is going to take time and a lot of schooling.
There is nothing wrong with being in your 30's and starting a new career.
IMO nursing will offer you the higher pay and a more reliable job market.
Have you thought of a Nurse Practioner? They make great money and work alongside DRs doing just waht you described you may want to do.
Good luck.

I just am not sure nursing is what I want to do anymore. I really want something with animals, but feel limited by what is available in my state. Some of you may know, my state is BIG on families and short on everything that doesn't put family first. So with that, nursing school is extremely hard to get into here, due to a lot of women wanting a good job that allows them to stay home majority of the time to be with kids and still be able to bring home the bread. We actually don't have a nursing shortage here currently, and nursing jobs are getting scarce.

I know of many friends who have been trying to get into the nursing program for years, they have all their pre requisites done, and are just stuck waiting to get in. It's a joke here, you have better chances of going to med school than nursing school.
