Thank you all for the comments. Lianne Marie Victoria Laruan , Jemelyn Mae Sodusta , I agree that if your job doesn't pay you enough you have to unfortunately change it.

Healthcare professionals, be it doctors or nurses spend a lot of time preparing themselves to be competent in this field. And the demand of healthcare is always going to remain. It is true that unlike the other professions like IT or engineering where people are seen frequently changing their career path, this is unlikely in field of medicine.
