Master of Health Informatics or Library/Information Science?

I studied Biomedical Computing so I wanted to go into Health informatics but I didn't get any jobs except at a small private company. I left that field because it is hard to get a job in that field and I would competing with nurses for those jobs also health field in Ontario, Canada has always had funding problems. Anyways I was thinking of Master of Library and Information Science recently since I can apply to Ernst & Young, University of Health network, CSIS (Canadian version of CIA) and I have library work experience. My friend suggests me to keep pursuing Health Informatics because Master of Library/Information Science isn't consider an IT degree. I am not a computer person so I dunno if Health Informatics really for me. Anyone know the career path for either of the Master's degree? Is interesting while I was talking to my mom about getting reference for Master of Library Science I got a call right after that I wasn't selected for Report Developer position at Cardiac Care Network of Ontario but they want me to apply to the Application Support Analyst position. I was about to give up the heath informatics field and got that call.
