Physician Assistant (PA) and Nurse Practitioner (NP) careers are similar to physicians in the sense that both see patients and prescribe medications, but the schooling doesn't take as long as an MD or DO (and they don't spend time caring for patients like a nurse would). There are other masters degrees in nursing that allow you to be more specialized, for example, my aunt is a nurse anesthetist and her job is to administer anesthesia during surgeries in the OR. There are also nurses and PAs who help physicians perform surgeries (if surgery is something that interests you). If you got a nursing degree you could also become a research nurse and enroll patient on clinical trials.
(I know I just listed a lot of RN careers, but I wanted to make sure to touch on the fact that you could get a masters and have a completely different job than an average RN)
Physical therapy (PT) is also a cool option, especially if you're someone who's really active or interested in working with athletes/people who are injured. They help people rehab acute and chronic injuries, or do strengthening work with elderly or individuals who are recovering from surgeries, etc.
I would recommend doing some google searching to see what else is out there.
Medical assistant, physical therapy, technician, operating room Tech etc..
I would recommend see a career counselor to give you the whole list.
