    You list "nursing" so you may be a people-person. However, I'll give a small shout out for automation engineering. Nearly everything uses computer automation in one way or another. From micro-surgery to bronze casting, all the sensors and devices are talking to computers. And someone -- preferably someone clever and wise! -- gets to design the programming for all this. I guess if that's interesting, I'd advise a student to seek broad knowledge; once you are hired into a position your work will probably narrow down to whatever system you work with the most.

    My career? I work in a small IT department for a large public school district. We've been migrating to Ubuntu for the last few years and recently did a single rollout of 1,700 laptops to our students, bringing the overall numbers just shy of 4,000 Ubuntu systems total.

    wait for it...

    My wife is a retired nurse. Watch your back, there all evil.

    On the bright side, she made more money

    Let me just say that I'm old enough to have many friends in senior IT positions and many friends who are senior/retired nurses. Without exception, the group that extols the virtues of their profession most are the nurses. They will tell you the hours are horrendous, the superiors are dragons, the workload is intense and the monetary rewards are little. And none of them would give up a minute of their career to do anything else. If you have this passion, then choose nursing. If not, then plan B is acceptable.
