Should I choose a career in nursing or art?

I've been researching the career of registered staff nurse and I've found that there are many benefits, opportunities, and it's in high demand. BUT, I plan on getting my BFA in photography but I'm unsure about the career opportunities, salary, and availability in its fields. I want to make a living making art but I want a stable income too! What if I pursue photography and fall flat on my face once I'm out of college?
