None of the above.
First you start with your skills, interest, aptitude, personality through assessments, to learn what you're good at and help shape your future plans, goals and ambitions. You need to define the ultimate question for yourself - WHY? This will drive every decision, and helps to define who you are as a person.
Remember, your vocation is what your do, and is influenced by who your are, Your vocation does not define who you are. If you don't know who you are, what motivates you, what interests you and helps to answer your own WHY? Once you can answer that question, you can then start to use those other pieces, along with college entrance exam results, to start looking at your future career plans.
Next, you start reviewing all of these things, and look at the similarities, to start narrowing the path, and research the various jobs you might want to be doing near the end of your career. Next, you start charting the experience needed, skills to acquire in the process, and start to determine steps along the way, to set as goals, steps toward your future planned job.
This may or may not include further education, certifications, specialized training or skills, may require you to live in certain places, in order to perform those jobs. There may be a limited number of jobs available, which might either strengthen your resolve or alter your plans to do something different.
You may also look at trends, for those jobs, how often things change, or are changing in the market, and determine that this might not be the 'right' direction for you, long-term. Keep in mind, a lot is changing due to automation, globalization, digitization and migration to the cloud, as many things become "services" that are no longer performed or supported by people. The purpose of the industrial revolution is to eliminate people from the workplace. As time progresses, and technology is applied, many more jobs are being lost, and the work place is forever altered. Technology helps you do your job, and may eventually replace you. Do not embrace technology, as it is NOT YOUR FRIEND...
How do you feel about helping other people, and helping them to succeed, and your success is based upon their success? That will also help to determine your selection. How does environmental factors impact your thinking? How do you feel about bullying? How do you feel about making a difference in other people's lives, in a positive way? How do you feel about businesses that take advantage of other people, especially the lower class, or needy people? How good are you with Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM)?
Medical will need to focus on Science, chemistry, biology and technology. Banker needs to focus on Math, accounting, finance, business and marketing. You will ant to look at the educational requirements of the jobs, and be up to those challenges, before you make those decisions.
Bankers are bullies, taking advantage of their customers, and making money from fees, interest and transaction charges, while working with their money. Yes, finance can be helpful, for some, but harmful for many others. If this sits well with you, pursue that career.
Dentists charge high prices for their services, to help pay for their education, equipment, etc. Insurance rarely pays much for their services. If you want to work in the industry, supporting dental health, please look into the requirements, the pay, and determine if this is good for you.
Medical Assistants usually are working toward nursing or other medical careers, and is an entry level role. You might want to look at more long-term goals, and see if this makes sense for you, to becomes a detour, as you're working toward other things.
Nursing, can be rewarding, if you can hold up to the high physical demands, long shifts, and the rigorous training required for the roles, and low pay to start, along with those high bills for the education. If you can pay as you go, it may work out well for you.
There are many ways to approach this, and many different types of nursing roles. I would recommend that you look more closely at your options here, and find ways to make it work for you, to exit college with the lowest possible debt. There are a lot of science, health, chemistry, medical, anatomy, pharmacology and other training that comes before you graduate, then study for the license exams.
Each requires specialty knowledge, training and education, other than banking as a teller or customer service rep. You have a lot of in-depth research to do, and personal inventory to review to determine which career is best for you. You will probably find that none of these is appropriate for you, and you ought to look at something completely different, and perhaps, may not even require college.

RN's have a lot of pressure and make a lot of money. Do you have the ability to go through an intensive medical program?
