What healthcare job takes the least amount of schooling?

I know the quick ones don't make a lot of money, but I'm tired of the retail field! I'm going to start online classes to work toward a BS in Medical Imaging Technology but I still need to work while I do that schooling. I also know it will be helpful to get some patient care experience. As far as I can tell, Phlebotomy looks like the fastest with a 12wk course. All suggestions are appreciated :)

Yeah Phlebotomy is fast and it's something I'll be looking into soon. I'm finishing up my EMT-Basic course this trimester (two trimesters total) and I'll be certified to provide emergency care on an ambulance. Not in it for the money but you learn a lot of skills and fast.

Nurses assistant. I believe it doesn't take long to get a certificate in that.

I work as a health care recruiter and just attended a job fair last week where there were a ton of newly-trained medical workers (including imaging) that couldn't find jobs.
