Nurse

Fame

Florence Nightingale is as famous as a nurse can possibly get, but she had the advantage of tending to the wounded during the Crimean War, an event which you likely missed out on. However, she also started a nursing school and wrote a popular book on the subject, so if you think you can find enough time in between cleaning vomit off of bedsheets and wresting butter knives out of the hands of suicidal patients to do the same, then yeah—fame may be right around the corner for you.
