I used to look into a lot of those branches myself but I am older than you and decided that wasn't the type of career I wanted. If you are really interested you should do any of those. If you work in Northern Canada the government will pay your student loans over a period of time (I think 3 years) and the time really does fly by once you are in school. 6 years isn't really very long if you want to work for the rest of your life doing something you enjoy.

The education for an MD is 8 years. From there, it's usually 3 years in an Internal Medicine, Pediatric, or Pathology residency and another 1-3 in a Hematology fellowship. Residency and fellowship are paid. It's fine if that's too much work or time for you - there's nothing wrong with making that decision. Make sure you are being honest with yourself about why you aren't going into it - "too long" isn't a valid excuse for someone who really wants to do it. Nurses make a pretty good living. Average in the US right now is something like $65k. If you parents can't pay for your education, you do what most other students do - you take out student loans, you get scholarships, and you get grants. For nursing, the government has programs where they pay for some or all of your education in exchange for paid service in an underserved area after licensing. If you don't like science, you don't like science. Ok. That removes you from most mid or upper level health care. You claim you do well in English, but this post is loaded with significant and basic grammatical errors. If salary is a deciding factor, then history and music won't have guarantees of any money over what a nurse makes, unless you land a nice teaching gig for 6 figures a year. That's going to take a PhD, which means "too long in school". Lower positions can be had with a Master's, but then you are closer to a nursing salary and you have more hurdles. If you start getting closer to graduation and you still have no idea what you want to do and you don't have motivation to do the research on your own, then speak with a military recruiter. Ask about college funding and officer's training. They will give you tests to see what you are good at and will steer you in that direction.
